Thad Lewis wasn’t the only one playing in front of his family on Sunday in Miami. Frostproof, Florida native Nickell Robey also had family in attendance at Sun Life Stadium and his interception return allowed him the opportunity to do the kind of end zone celebrations he did in high school.
“I got a little flip in the end zone. It was fun. I was having fun,” said Robey of his celebration following his 19-yard interception return for a TD. ”In high school in Florida that’s what we always do. We always hit a flip into the end zone for our first touchdown. I did that and it’s called a Florida grind. You go in there and you hit a somersault in the end zone. I was home, my family was there. I was happy that I performed well so it was a great day.”
Robey said he visualized his interception in the days leading up to Sunday’s game.
“I actually told myself I was going to believe what I saw and go get it and I played it in my head and in the hotel room I watched a little film,” Robey said. ”Coach always tells us to visualize yourself making plays. I do that on my own. If you’re any athlete you’re going to visualize yourself making plays so then to go out there and execute it was great.”
