“I’m a competitor by birth, so it instantly destroyed me that I could not be a starter, but was able to regain a place in the teams that performed the best in the NFL, which is big.” This year, I really celebrated the last day of the harvest because I thought to myself: I did. That is my first goal, ”he said Journal.
The friendly offensive lineman, however, kept his eyes open when he arrived at Chiefs Camp in late July.

Duvernay-Tordiff was so caught up in the idea of initially finding his guard post on the right that he knew the slope would be steep to get there.
“People sometimes take it lightly, but getting a place on the team is already very difficult. I do not have access to gyms. I worked long hours in CHSLDs and tried to keep the physical shape of a professional athlete who usually benefits from the medical team to optimize his performance. For me, being with the team is still big Success. “
Get ready to play

“Here [dimanche], I’m not in uniform, but I spent time in the game providing information and advice to the tray. I will try to help him as much as possible. The goal is to take on the role given to me and return to the position I was in before I was injured. I have to show that I can be a go-to option for a proper guard post. ”
Quebec Dairy New Ambassador
Already Laurent Duvernay-Tordiff, Chief Player, but also a Medical Graduate, CHSLD Worker, Speaker and Head of a Foundation in his name. As his life was not full enough, the role of a representative of the Producers de Light du Quebec was now coming to fill his rare free time.
Not far from the adventure, Duvernay-Tordiff teamed up with dairy producers for the next three years. Already, he has filmed three humorous commercials featuring his athlete, student, and “little guy from the countryside.”
“I have my opinion on the campaign. The idea of different angles in my life, the little man in the countryside brought back the idea by meeting real producers on their farm, I found that it produced a nice balance and it was in my image. I loved the idea of promoting producers with a healthy product called milk. It’s important to be consistent with who I am, ”the man explained with a thousand and one challenges.
