Are you ever curious about the real lives of politicians, celebrities and athletes?
Who are their mentors and who would they really like to meet? What's in their fridge?
Each Tuesday, ABC Action News asks the same 10 questions of a Bay area leader or celebrity. They're fun questions that let you get to know the person.
In this week's profile, we are thrilled to hear from Tampa Bay Buccaneer Guard Davin Joseph.
Joseph is a native Floridian, but spent his college days in Oklahoma. He became the second player from Oklahoma, behind Lee Roy Selmon, to be drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers acquired Joseph in the first round in 2006.
In his rookie year, the Bucs started Joseph in 12 of 13 games and since then considered him an "anchor" on the offensive line.
Just recently, Davin was named to Pro Football Weekly’s 2011 Midseason All Pro Team.
He has also been a pillar in this community. In fact, Davin has his own charity Davin's Dream Team.
And while he has been blessed with a great football career-signing a seven-year, $53 million contract, his personal dream is to pay it forward.
10 questions for Tampa Bay Buccaneer Davin Joseph
1.) What is your all time favorite movie or song?
"Right now, the movie that I really like and always can watch again is Constantine with Keanu Reeves. That's my classic."
2.) Do you have a Smartphone?
"Words with Friends. I play a lot of people, but teammate Jeremy Trueblood and I probably play each other the most. I've beaten him lot so far this year. He's not very good, but he keeps on trying to beat me!"
3.) Who do you count as your mentors?
I'd say my dad. When you're a teenager, you go through your rebellious stage, and you don't want to talk to your parents. The older I get, I think I call them with every problem I have.
4.) What was your very first job?
I was a bus boy at this place called "William's Island," which was a resort down in South Florida. I was trying to be the best bus boy I could be back then. I was happy just having something to do. I think I was 15.
5.) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I'm working on being more considerate. That's my 2011 project. I had some struggles last week, but I'm just trying to be more considerate of other people's feelings.
6.) What do you consider your greatest success?
I'm still working on it, but just trying to be a good dad to my kids. Right now, I'd say, 'So far, so good.' I have a great time with them. I try to spend as much time as I can with them doing different things. I'm still a work in progress, but that is the most important thing that's going on in my life.
7.) Tell us something about you that most people don't know?
I think everyone does this now, right? I watch Dexter. That's my newest obsession, but now they have a new show called Homeland that might be just as good, if not better, than Dexter. Sergeant Brody is my favorite character on TV.
8.) If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, who would they be?
Muhammad Ali is one. Another guy that I really admired growing up was Bruce Smith. He played defensive end for the Buffalo Bills. Lastly, Barack Obama, especially in this day and age, is a part of history on multiple fronts, not just in being the first black president, but also the crises that he deals with and trying to make changes. So, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Smith and President Barack Obama.
9.) What is in your fridge right now?
I think I have some Papa John's in there from three days ago, jugs of water, lots of yogurt that I haven't made my way through yet, cheese, and sandwich meat. Tonight, it's Chinese food, so there's going to be some Chinese in there tonight
10.) If you could have a different career, other than what you're doing now, what would it be?
Have been volunteering for years trying to improve the lives of our foster This kind of goes along with what I want to do after football. If I'm financially able to, I'll just volunteer. That's what I want to do when I'm done with football, working with my own nonprofit. Whether that means having a job with a nonprofit as a coordinator or working as a volunteer, I just want to give back.
