Bridgewater strives for positive image

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Just like UK football coach Mark Stoops last week, Louisville Cardinal quarterback and heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater making the rounds on the ESPN campus.

While appearing on College Football Live, amid the off-the-field headlines made by Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Bridgewater was asked about his image and how he represents himself, as well as the University of Louisville.

"You have a lot of followers, you have a lot of people looking up to you. You're a role model in a lot of people's eyes," says Bridgewater, who is projected as a top-5 pick in next year's NFL Draft. "I just constantly remind myself that every one of my actions is seen by someone. Before I ever make a decision to do something, I remember that I'm representing the University of Louisville, my family, and myself, and I don't want to bring that image unto myself."
