Ryan Jensen: Hodor
Poor Hodor. Hodor was a fan favorite from the time that his character picked up speed as being Bran’s protector. A gentle giant most of the time, when his friends were provoked Hodor became a force to be reckoned with. While not as big as Hodor, offensive lineman Ryan Jensen is a player that will always “Hold the door” for his teammates, specifically those that are on the brunt end of a defensive penalty.

Jensen has no problem getting physical with defensive players long after the whistle has blown if they knock down his quarterback, and while these penalties may not always be the smartest, he is always someone that you want to have watching your back.
Lavonte David: Jon Snow
Going in a different direction, Jon Snow is one of the most well-liked characters in the series. His altruism shines through in his attempts to save the North and all of Westeros from the Night King. He does whatever is asked of him and anchors all of the other characters together even when the situation is incredibly dire.
Linebacker Lavonte David epitomizes this Jon Snow characteristic. David plays his heart out on every game no matter the score or the Bucs’ standings. While Jon Snow is the heartbeat of the North, Lavonte David is the heartbeat of the Buccaneers defense, and a leader of the whole team.
