Terrell Burgess' ambition

The latest Pro Bowl standings were revealed on Wednesday. Only one Washington Commanders player is leading their respective position group voting as it stands.

Terrell Burgess has stepped up to the plate in the absence of Jeremy Reaves and Darrick Forrest. He leads the NFC to be the conference's special teams representative. At this late stage, all signs point to the former third-round pick out of Utah securing the distinction.

When discussing his current place at No. 1, Burgess was grateful beyond measure based on comments via Washington's website. But he remains determined to keep contributing, making the plays needed, and living up to those who are unfortunately unable to participate.

"I think it's pretty cool. Obviously, I'm just gonna try and keep playing well, and hopefully it stays that way. I just did my best to try and fill the shoes that were there before me. With Reavo [Jeremy Reaves] and DFoe [Darrick Forrest] going down, it was definitely big shoes to fill. So, just being able to get right in those shoes and just play to the best of my abilities."

This would be the second straight year the Commanders have sent a special teamer to the Pro Bowl. Reaves and punter Tress Way were chosen last season. Hopefully, the momentum can continue as Burgess looks to add his name to the list.
