Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? Although retired, I still look up to Derek Jeter for how much respect and love he has for the game of baseball.

What is your favorite cartoon character? Jimmy Neutron.

If time machines were real, and you could choose just one – to travel forward or backward – which would you select and why? I would travel backward in time because I’ve loved the past four years at Saint X and I’d want to have more time at the school.

If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your “go to” song? I Believe I can Fly – R. Kelly

What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? My favorite hour of the day is 6 a.m. There’s something special about driving to morning practice when no one else is on the road, listening to music, and getting ready to go for a run knowing your competition could very well be sleeping in their bed.

If time machines were real, and you could choose just one – to travel forward or backward – which would you select and why? I would definitely travel backwards to experience some of the History first hand. I would also be able to predict the outcome of Super Bowls and World Series and win some bets.
