Behind the Scenes

Do you have a favorite sports movie?: By far it’s probably “Remember the Titans,” but the new one, “When the Game Stands Tall” is up there with it. I like it a lot and the family aspect of it.
Do you have a favorite sports team?: Definitely the Broncos for NFL, then Michigan for college. I’m more of a college football fan.
Who is your favorite athlete?: Muhammad Ali. He has some legendary quotes, did some legendary things and broke barriers that were set in front of him.
Do you play any other sports?: I used to wrestle but not anymore. I didn’t like having to cut weight.
What teacher had the greatest impact on you: For sure coach (David) Vogt. I was one of the first cats who came in for work outs when I was able to in eighth grade. He picked me up, and ever since that day he’s helped me and told me what I needed to do to be successful. It’s gotten me here so far and I really appreciate him for that.
If you won $1 million what’s the first thing you’d do with the money?: Buy a big old lake boat and go fishing for months on end.
Who’s your favorite superhero?: I actually like Ant-Man. No one seems to like him but he used his brain to make his powers stronger, and I think that’s pretty cool.
If you could have any super power what would it be?: I’ve always been fascinated with breathing under water. I think that’d be awesome to be able to breathe under water.
Do you have any pregame rituals?: I’m kind of religious, and there are a couple Bible verses that I’ve liked since I was a little kid. And I listen to the Offspring because they’re my favorite pump-up band.
Do you have any hidden talents?: I like playing the ukulele. That’s something not a lot of people know about me.
How long have you been growing your hair?: Since forever. I’ve only ever gotten it trimmed. I’ve never actually cut my hair. I used to have a rocking mullet, then that went out of style so I had to change the style.
