first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   “I talked to the coaches and they were pretty much OKwith me missing the second OTA,” said Schofield. “I wasup all night, all morning.“I actually looked into my son’s eyes. My fiance, she’sHawaiian so he has green eyes. I looked into his eyes andI was like, ‘You know what, I’ve got to get to work.’ Ican never take a day off or anything off. I’ve got toprovide. I have someone to provide for now. Just to seethat, I think my motivation and my grind, I’m going towork a little bit harder.”The former fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin is alwaysamong the last players off the field each day.But these days — in addition to his son, Schofield ismotivated by playing time. This season, he’s expected tostart at one of the two outside linebacker positions inthe Cardinals 3-4 defense.“I mean that’s my mind-set. I think everyone comes outhere to prepare to be a starter,” said Schofield, who iscurrently running with the first team opposite Sam Acho onthe other side. “Each day I’ve been trying to get betterand perfect my craft.”Schofield, after missing nearly half his rookie seasonrecovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, respondedwith a strong sophomore campaign. He played in all 16games in 2011, registering 4.5 sacks — including three inthe final five games. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away O’Brien Schofield is smiling.Then again, he’s always smiling: on the field, off thefield.But this smile is different.The Cardinals third-year linebacker was just congratulatedon the birth of his son, eliciting a wide smile and theproverbial sparkle in the eyes.Judea Anthony Schofield was born a week ago Wednesday inthe early morning hours of May 23rd.A short time later, the brand new father returned to thepractice field, refusing to miss even a minute of theteam’s second OTA of the offseason. “That’s what I did really well in college,” Schofield saidof pressuring the quarterback. “I started coming along myfirst two years in the league and this year I’m ready toput it all together.”Over the offseason, Schofield underwent surgery on bothshoulders. He said he had his labrum and rotator cuffworked on in his left shoulder “and then my right one justneeded some cleanup.”Finally healthy, Schofield is expecting big things fromhimself in 2012.“I’m not going to give no sack number but (Adrian Wilson)has told me he needs at least 10 so I would like to getabove 10 or more. That’s what I’m working for.”Schofield had 12 sacks his senior year at Wisconsin, butthe Cardinals haven’t had a player reach double figures inthat category since Bertrand Berry tallied 14.5 in 2004.With his goals set, Schofield knows there’s no time torest, which is a good thing with a one-week-old baby athome.“I’m happy that we’re only practicing three days a weekright now so that really helps me recoup on the weekends.” – / 33last_img read more
