Big Year Ahead for Colts' Keiaho
But that doesn't mean he hasn't taken the time to reflect back on the team's accomplishment, replaying in his mind the point in the game where he and many of the other Colts realized that their dream of being proclaimed as World Champions was just minutes away.
"It was just a surreal moment once Kelvin [Hayden] returned the interception for a touchdown and we got an interception on the next possession and we realized this game was ours," he told Scout.com's Ed Thompson recently. "It was just surreal knowing so many guys worked so hard. I'm so blessed to come in my first year and be one of the guys on a Super Bowl team."
Although Keiaho was listed as a reserve at the strongside linebacker his rookie year, he enters this season with the expectation that he'll be starting at the weakside linebacker position.
"I have a great opportunity to win the starting job at WILL (weakside) because Cato [June] left," he said. "I think it says a lot about what the coaches think about me to put me in a position to do that.
"I'm just going to try my best to have fun and do what I do. And hopefully I can bring a lot to the defense and we can improve on last year's performance."
Scout.com subscribers can listen to a 4-minute audio clip from Freddy's recent interview as he talks about the most fun he had during the offseason, hitting the rookie wall, tapping into the knowledge of Gary Brackett, and his thoughts on playing weakside linebacker instead of strongside in the Colts' defensive scheme.
