Pewter Report debuted a new season-long weekend feature this month called Fifth Down, that will showcase some of the Bucs’ new players each week as the season goes along. This week’s featured player is Bucs linebacker Adarius Glanton.
Glanton, a native of Polk County, Florida, was born in Bartow and played his high school football for Lake Gibson in north Lakeland. Following high school, Glanton attended Florida Atlantic but went undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. Glanton signed with the Carolina Panthers and bounced from the practice squad to the active roster before being signed by the Buccaneers last November.
Glanton took a few minutes with PewterReport.com’s Mark Cook in the locker room and talked about life outside of football.
Q1. If you are sentenced to death row, and the warden asks you what your final meal is, what are you eating?
A. Probably some kind of fried fish. Maybe flounder, with a side of some type of rice, and of course, hush puppies.
Q2. You are sitting around on a weekend with nothing to do and none of your friends will find out, what is your guilty pleasure television show?
A. I don’t really have any guilty pleasure shows. Anything sports related or outdoors related is what I am usually watching. Maybe an older cartoon I watched when I was growing up. If I catch an older one on just to bring back memories. I watched Rugrats or Rocket Power.
Q3. If you weren’t playing professional football, what profession would you be doing?
A. Fishing. Having my own boat. It is a sport, too. Freshwater bass fishing competitor.
Q4. If you could date anyone, who would be your biggest celebrity dream date?
A. Megan Fox. Actually, I’ll change it to Miranda Lambert.
Q5. You are driving cross country and you can only listen to one artist, who is it going to be?
A. Probably Cole Swindell. I saw him at the Strawberry Festival this year. I am a country music guy.

All right. Much better answers than last time.
Don’t know if I’m up for cartoons, but I can get behind some bass fishing and fish eating.
I love the photo of the bass. Looks like a 15 pounder. Oh wait his arms are out stretched, classic way to make a fish look bigger.
It’s all good though, I know that trick and use it a lot.
Don’t give away all our secrets man.
Give me Bugs Bunny or Wile E. Coyote (Super Genius) any day!
