What inspired you to play Flag Football? I was asked to play by some friends during my freshman year of college. I had played 8 years of tackle football growing up, so the transition to flag football was natural.
How do you prepare for a big matchup? Based on the strengths and weaknesses of both teams, I try to devise a strategy which maximizes our strengths and minimizes our weaknesses.
How competitive is the team you play on? We are currently ranked third in the nation (prior to Nationals), so I’d say we’re pretty competitive. We were fortunate enough to add a lot of highly skilled players over the last year, and it has really paid off for us on the field.
How do you like playing in Mid East Sports? We play some of the top teams in the nation on a weekly basis, so I don’t think you can find better competition anywhere else. That and occasionally getting to play on turf fields is what makes this such a great league. I also enjoy the atmosphere on the sidelines where there are often plenty of people watching the games and interacting with players from different teams.
What other sports do you play? I’ve played just about everything at one time or another. I played football, baseball, and wrestling in high school. I played on rugby and racquetball teams in college in addition to a little baseball. Currently, it’s flag football, softball, and some rock climbing.
Any other information you would like to let your fans know?I’m looking forward to another big year for both my team and myself in 2013.
