Fans Go "Inside the Huddle" With Dolphins Players

Posted Jun 19, 2013

First of four summer conference calls was open to all Dolphins fans.

Less than one week after the Miami Dolphins held their final mini-camp of the offseason, their fans got to interact with some of the players on an exclusive conference call tonight.

Previously, these conference calls with players, owner Steve Ross, General Manager Jeff Ireland, Head Coach Joe Philbin and CEO Mike Dee were only open to season ticket members. But now all fans are able to register for the “Inside the Huddle” series, which features a group of players fielding questions in a unique format.

Those participants that registered for the inaugural call were able to learn more about left guard Richie Incognito, cornerback Nolan Carroll, center Mike Pouncey and linebacker Olivier Vernon. So two offensive players and two defensive players handled the questions and provided differing perspectives, answering everything from what each of them likes to do off the field to what their expectations are for 2013.

Pouncey’s favorite question came midway through the call when another University of Florida alum from the class of 1987 asked him about how excited he was to see three Gators drafted by the Dolphins in April – linebacker Jelani Jenkins, running back Mike Gillislee and kicker Caleb Sturgis. Pouncey bleeds orange and blue as well as aqua and orange so he answered with enthusiasm.

“I love the Gators. That’s my school and I think they’re going to do a great job,” he said. “We’ve been watching them but you can’t really tell anything right now, but we’ve seen strides out of all of those guys and we just hope they can come and help our team right away.”

The third-year center and twin brother of Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey also revealed that he likes to golf and fish when he gets some down time. The other three like to travel and spend time with their families.

Three of these interactive calls remain, with the next one scheduled for next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., and other players scheduled to take part include wide receivers Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe The third one will take place on July 10th and the last one on July 17th and fans can register for these calls at
