COLORADO SPRINGS — “You have to get the perfect thing every day. It’s cool to come here and stay home.”
This is the motto that George Sylvanic has lived throughout his football career.
“Have a great attitude and work for the team”
The monument’s native was Palmer Ridge’s star offense and defense lineman, who threw a little tight end.
When his fourth grade hit, the original bear had only one offer to play college football. It was from a local team in the Air Force.
“It was a football caliber,” Sylvanic explained. “The Air Force believed in me and still believes it’s good to go to the programs and organizations that need you.”
Silvanic has found a place on the offense line. However, due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the 2021 season, George took unprecedented defenses shortly before the Falcons home opening match against the Navy.
“It was just 17 days ago,” said Air Force football head coach Troy Calhoun at the beginning of the 2020 season after the Falcons defeated the Navy. “So we can get it back in two and a half weeks. It’s a great job. It’s great to see a man who has been there and rewarded for the past four years. “
And the senior was greatly rewarded.
After an outstanding final season with a total of 34 tackles and 2.5 sack, Sylvanic wasn’t drafted, but found an NFL home in Los Angeles at the Rams.
“I felt this team was a great place to go. Like last year, they are the No. 1 defense in the NFL. You can’t really beat it.
So, as the new NFL season begins in the next few weeks, George will continue to remember the motto that led him to this point.
“Every time you practice, you have to improve by 1%,” said the monument native. “After practice, I have to do all the extra work to try to put myself in my position.”
