Who is your favorite athlete?: Tim Howard

What is your favorite sports movie?: “Miracle”

Who is your favorite superhero?: Captain America

What was your favorite children’s book?: “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!,” by Dr. Seuss

What is your favorite outdoor activity?: I like and do all of them, but my favorite has to be kayaking or skiing.

What is your favorite food to eat after a game?: If we lose, I don’t eat for a while. If we win, a vanilla milkshake.
