John Estes became the third offensive lineman from the University of Hawaii on the Jaguars roster when he signed in April as a rookie free agent, joining guards Vince Manuwai and Kynan Forney. Estes sat down with jaguars.com this week to reveal his drink of choice each morning and his favorite college stadium, among other items.
What did you watch on TV when you were growing up?
I watched the X-Files. I have an older brother eight years older than me, so I just watched whatever he watched.
What is your favorite current show?
I love watching Law &Order.
One person you would trade places with for a day?
Probably LeBron James. He's a great athlete. I just love how he plays the game. He's one of the best basketball players in the world.
Do you have any superstitions?
When I get dressed and put my socks and shoes on, I always put everything on from right to left.
What is a talent you wish you had?
My brothers played the guitar pretty good, but I didn't really pick it up at all. Whenever they're playing I always wish I would have learned.
Hero in life?
My dad. He's just worked so hard throughout his life. He's still working today, and really set me and my brothers to be successful.
What was your favorite college stadium to play in?
We played in Tuscaloosa [Alabama Crimson Tide] one time. That was the best atmosphere. We played in Gainesville [Florida Gators] as well, but I'd say Alabama was the craziest.
Do you have a motto that you live by?
Take one day at a time and try to get better every day.
First thing you have to have in the morning?
Water. I always drink water when I wake up. I feel dehydrated all the time.
Do you have a bucket list?
No, not really. I always wanted to go to the Bahamas, but I've never been. Since I've been in Hawaii and California all the time I usually went over there. Now that I'm on this side of the country I might have an opportunity to go.
Not cutting my fingernails.
