By Mitchell Kapler
Who is your non-sports related role-model?Both of my parents because they have been supporting me and kept my spirits up when things were not going good. In the end they led me in the right direction.
Favorite place to eat in Tucson?Red Lobster, I love shrimp
When your not working out & going to school what do you do?Go watch movies and hang out with my friends, play Playstation 2 every now and then.
Who is the best at NCAA football (Playstation) on the team?Me of course!
What's your favorite movie?All the mob movies, anything with Robert De Niro.
Who was your favorite player growing up and why?Terrell Davis of the Denver Broncos because he was an underdog, no one expected to be good and he just blew up. Plus, he played for my favorite team.
What's you're major & do you have a favorite class? My major is Sociology and I have a double minor in family studies and communications. I liked Sociology of Gender Interactions because it was a subject area I had no prior knowledge of.
What made you decide to play football at Arizona?I lived in Arizona for nine years and I wanted to stay in state but didn't want to go ASU, it was too close to home plus I wanted to try something different.
What are your goals for the summer?Individually I want to improve on all different aspects of my game, everything it takes to be an all-around running back I want to improve on. Running, catching, blocking, whatever it takes. As far as the team goes I just want perfect attendance to all the summer workouts.
What is your favorite aspect about game day?How exciting the atmosphere is, the players and fans are all pumped up and I really feed off of that energy, it's electric.
