One of the times when I’ve accidently dug or passed the ball over the net and it has landed for a kill and I’ve gone crazy on the court.

Weiner dogs because those are the dogs that I have and I’m interested to see what they would have to say about my family.

Blair Moon who has everything that I like but is able to buy a lot more of it than I am.

The Atlanta Falcons and I would sit right behind our team.

What is the nicest compliment that you have received? Geeske Banck, a former teammate, hadn’t seen me in about 2 years and when she saw me, she asked if I had been locked in the weight room, which I guess meant that I had really gotten in shape.

When your Tech days are over, how would you like to be remembered?

As someone who was always laughing on and off the court and putting other people at ease because of it.
