Why you chose Whitworth:
I came here to play soccer, but I had no idea how great the academic side of Whitworth was.

Pre-game ritual/superstitions: Before every game I write the initials of my family in the grass. Nothing special, but it just gives me some motivation before a game.

What’s something people would be surprised to find out about you? I am an identical twin. My brother goes to Pacific University, so we kind of have an intense rivalry.

What would you name the autobiography of your life?
The Real Hobbit

Favorite band/type of music:
I listen to a lot of rap and dub step. But I’ll listen to anything except country. I come from an area that everyone listens to country. I’m not a fan.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy

What is one thing that you want to do before you die?
Follow Manchester United around in Europe for a season and watch every game.

Spend or Save (money): I try to save, but it’s just really hard.

Do you have a collection of anything? I have a quarter collection. It was something I did when I was younger with my grandparents.

Name the last movie you watched: The new James Bond film “Sky Fall.” All I can say is I wish I was him.

What’s a saying that you say a lot? “Prove it.”

Comedy or Romance: Both.

Favorite board game: Monopoly. It’s a classic. Though, I don’t know if I’ve ever won a game.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? Rattlesnake. It was very slimy.

Tea or Coffee: I drink tea. I’m not the tallest guy, and with the rumor that coffee/caffeine makes you shrink… I’ll stay away from that stuff.

If they made a movie of your life, who would you want to play you? Tom Cruise. Us little guys gotta stay together.

Favorite TV show/movie: Suits and Blue Collar.

What word do you have trouble saying? Aluminum. I struggle with the “n.” I substitute it with an “m.”
