Barron explains the role of film study in getting ready for an opponent, and how motion can change the defensive secondaries’ coverage package.

“I feel like DBs (defensive backs) and receivers are the best athletes on the field,” Barron said.

Barron explains his approach to getting ready for the game, and how he “zones out” and ignores the other factors like crowd noise before the game.
