Latinos around the NFL in Week 8

Here we are once again, following the feet and footsteps of the Latinos of the NFL in the 2022 season.

Something very important in every sports team, from the childhood stages to the professional ones, is that leaders are needed. Sometimes being a leader is something that develops as the player matures, perhaps depending on his position within the team – which may carry more responsibilities than others – and perhaps it evolves naturally because of his outgoing personality. .

Whatever the process of becoming a leader within a unit or a team, we can say without a doubt that fred warner he has become a leader on defense for the San Francisco 49ers, who selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft.

Just look at his energy in the Niners’ timbac, cheering on his teammates for the game. His self-confidence is very contagious.

Fred Warner, who turns 26 this month, is an example to follow.

We continue with our task is to closely follow the 2022 season of Latinos on the grid, week by week.

Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | week 8 | Week 9 | Week 10 | Week 11 | Week 12 | Week 13 | Week 14 | Week 15 | Week 16 | Week 17 | week 18

Latin Star of Week 8: fred warner (SF)

This week, we select the linebacker of Panamanian and Mexican descent fred warner as the most prominent Latino. There is no doubt that he helped the San Francisco 49ers (4-4) to a resounding victory over the Los Angeles Rams (3-4) to snap a two-game losing streak.

Warner was key in defending against the defending champions’ run. He had a game-high 12 tackles, and the 49ers limited the Ramos to an average of just 2.7 yards on 21 rushing attempts.

In addition, Warner made one of the two sacks to the local quarterback matthew staffordas well as two quarterback hits, a tackle for loss and a pass defensed.

Warner — whose first name is Frederico — was pleased after the game in a news conference, “That was great. That was fun. … It’s always like a different game every time. … We knew we needed it.” We have a bye week (in Week 9), we didn’t want to go down 3-5.”

The linebacker elaborated on the defense’s strategy against the Rams, “It was a division game. So we went out and took care of things. … We made some adjustments in terms of coverage. … I think it’s like getting more on third down and favorable distances to be able to generate more pressure on third down. I think that’s what made Stafford uncomfortable and being able to get off the field, because we just couldn’t get off the field in the first half.”

Great job Fred!


This week we present to you: Natalia Dorantes (WAS)

In April 2021, the Mexican-American Natalia Dorantes she became a pioneer within the NFL. She was the first Latina female sports program coordinator to be hired by the Washington Commanders.

Dorantes comes from a family of immigrants, originally from Yucatan. She was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Phoenix, Arizona.

It is symbolic and important that the trainer of the Commanders, Rum Rivera, of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent and one of the few Latino coaches in NFL history, is the one who gave him this opportunity. Latinos shake hands frequently. Of course, an offer of this caliber is only given — or should be given — if the person has made an effort to prove himself in his field and continues to show excellence, as is the case with Dorantes.

Dorantes works closely with Rivera. Program, plan and manage his calendar. He also works with various department heads, managing incoming requests for Rivera. In addition, his responsibilities include helping to coordinate draft meetings, free agents and scouting. He also works closely with director of football operations Bryan Porter, head athletic trainer Al Bellamy and team manager Drew Hampton and manages Washington’s Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Scholarship Program.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, Dorantes tweeted about the league’s efforts to celebrate player identity. His identity is an integral part of who Dorantes is.

Without a doubt, Dorantes is very proud of her Latin culture. Her tweet at the top of her personal page, from when she worked for the Texas A&M Aggies from 2017 to 2021, reads, “I embrace my culture and where my people come from. PROUD to be a daughter of immigrants AND a Latina in football.

The great news is that the number of women in different positions within the NFL is slowly increasing. For example, as the league tweeted, “There are now 15 women in coaching roles in the NFL, the most EVER in any professional men’s league in the world.”

This total of female coaches represents an increase of 25 percent compared to the previous campaign. In addition, the numbers of women are growing everywhere in the league with people like Sandra Douglas Morganthe new team president of the Las Vegas Raiders since July of this year… and as Natalia Dorantesrole model and Latino pride in the NFL.
