He embodies a competitive spirit

If you continue to seek passionate prospects, you've come to the right place. After all, Corum has been bitten by the football bug at an early age, and he shows no signs of that earnest interest in the sport fading anytime soon. In fact, he seems to be more invigorated than ever.

Corum does not just put on the pads, cleats, and helmet simply to perform well. Truth be told, his personal statistics actually hold relatively little value to him. He is in it to win it, front and center. What his personal statistics mean to him is simply a reference point of whether or not he contributed to a victory.

While Hollywood movies have touted how winners want the football, Corum does not want to be featured in the waning minutes of the game as some type of hero. He does, however, want those final few plays to rely upon a passionate player to win the game, and he knows that he is one of the most passionate players on the football field on any give play.

Corum has never been about sacrificing one game to be in better position for the following week. Here is his interview when the matter of playing Ohio State in back-to-back weeks was raised:

It was pretty clear that Corum had no interest to losing a football game to an opponent who could learm from a loss to have a better game plan the following week. Corum does not throw in the towel, run at half speed, or take plays off. He is every bit competitor. But, can he play?
