What is your favorite summer time activity?

Favorite vacation destination and why?

What was your first summer job? 
I’ve never had one.

What is the most important activity you engage in during the summer months that helps prepare you for the next season?

If they offered a class in __________ at Colorado during the summer I would surely get an A+

What is your favorite moment here at Colorado so far?  
Beating Oklahoma my freshman year.

The thing that surprised you the most about the move from the Big 12 to the Pac-12 Conferences is:
How many more fouls they call in the Pac-12 compared to the Big 12.

Best advice for youth that are beginning to compete in athletics.
If you want to become the best you can be set goals for yourself and work towards them everyday.

If you could play a single game/event for a CU team that is not your sport, which would it be and why? 
I would play football because I’ve always wanted to know what it is like to get hit by someone and to hit someone else.

If you could bring one famous person to Colorado for a day-long tour who would it be, and what would you do with them?
I would bring (Dallas Mavericks star) Dirk Nowitzki. First I would take him to the Original House of Pancakes for breakfast, then I’d give him a tour of Coors and get some lessons on the fade away from him, then I would take him hiking up the flatirons.
