Q&A With Michael Tutsie

How has fatherhood changed things for you?

It has changed everything. It has really changed my perspective on life a lot. I’ve really dove into my faith because I want to be the best father I can be for her. And to be able to bring her around all of my teammates and coaches and stuff has been a blessing.

Coming into your final season, what are some emotions you’re experiencing?

Just a lot of gratitude and a lot of excitement honestly. It’s probably the most excited I’ve been for football season just because it’s my last one and it’s also one that I wasn’t supposed to get to begin with.

The secondary had an amazing season last year but you guys are still continuing to try and develop and get better. How have you seen the group change this offseason?

Just the depth. Those second and third-year guys who are vets now have really helped us develop some depth. We have a lot of guys that have played a lot, but we also have a lot of younger guys that are developing. We just have a really full group of guys that we can trust to go out there.

Who are some of the younger guys that have taken off?

I would say Ryan Jones and Sam Jung are two young strong safeties that have really stood out for me.
