Vaccaro Validating Leadership Role

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
    Kenny Vaccaro could be in an NFL training camp right now. He’s really glad he’s not.
   
    “I don’t think I’m ready for the NFL,” a candid Vaccaro told media members Sunday.  “I mean, y’all saw what happened (this summer) – that can’t happen in the NFL.  I think I need to grow as a man and mature.”
What happened this summer: an arrest for failure to obey law enforcement.  The charges were dropped, but not before the UT safety learned a lesson.

    “Austin is a crazy city.  People are always watching you, especially being a Longhorn.  People are just looking to see if you’re going to get in trouble.”
Vaccaro says he earned back the respect of his teammates once he said he was sorry.  The lesson learned wasn’t the only one of the summer for him though.

    In May Vaccaro took a trip to New Zealand.  He had the chance to watch some rugby, which may have taught him something even bigger.

    ”They really do care about the guy that’s next to them.  In rugby each player is really, really important.  I don’t think guys always understand that as a team.  They don’t understand that offense, defense and special teams have to come together to win a championship.”

    A year ago Vaccaro finished third on the team with 82 tackles.  He added two sacks and two interceptions, and will play a huge role in how good the defense is this year.
