Behind the scenes

What is your favorite sports movie?: “McFarland” and “Remember the Titans”

What is your nickname?: “Fitz.” It’s what everybody in most of my classes and my teammates call me.

Who is your favorite artist?: Brockhampton. My music taste is so varied, from reggae to hip-hop, but I really like them right now.

What is your dream car?: 1972 Ford Mustang

What is your favorite pre- or post-Race meal?: Ants on a log for a pre-race meal. Post-race, I’d say anything with noddles.

If you could have any superpower, what would you pick?: Teleportation, because you can cruise around, go all sorts of places and check out everything for zero cost.

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?: Fishing in Alaska with my family. I’ve been a few times already, but I’d really love to go back soon.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?: Playing ultimate Frisbee at just about any park I can find.

Who is your favorite athlete?: Kobe Bryant; I’ve always loved his game.

What is your favorite book?: “The Street Lawyer,” by John Grisham. I’m reading it right now, and I’m so hooked.

What is your favorite local restaurant?: Zia Taqueria

Which teacher has had the Greatest impact on you?: Tim Fitzpatrick. He’s my team sports teacher for P.E., and is also the girls basketball coach, as well. And my former cross-country coach, David McMillan, for sure.

Who is your role model?: Steve Prefontaine is up there, obviously, especially being a distance runner, and Bernard Lagat.
