Maryland football head coach Mike Locksley launched a live show during the COVID-19 pandemic to bring people together and provide content when people need it most.
Locksley teamed up with NBC Sports Washington to start a twice-weekly show on his Instagram (@CoachLocks) every Tuesday and Friday at 7 p.m.
The show generally ranges from 30 minutes to an hour and includes guests from all areas of the sports world. Maryland names such as Brenda Frese, EJ Henderson and Vernon Davis have coincided with DMV stars like Ryan Zimmerman and Tom Wilson along with some of Locksley’s former players at Alabama including Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts and Jerry Jeudy.
Tuesday night, Wilson talked about his quarantine back in Canada, early memories with the Washington Capitals and how he developed his reputation as a physical player. Darrius Heyward-Bey discussed getting into movies in his down time and what it was like to be drafted No. 7 overall by the then-Oakland Raiders, while Vernon Davis and Locksley shared some fun family memories and more.
