Pac-10 Q&A: Stanford Wrestler Jake Johnson


On my iPod...Dispatch

What I’m reading...On Liberty by J.S. Mill

Favorite teams as a kid...Vikings

Super power I’d most like to have...The ability to control Electricity.

If you could compete in any other sport it would be...Golf

Most creative cheer or sign by a fan...My entire high school brought cutouts of my head when they were all holding them up it looked like I was performing for an army of my clones.

Who’s the funniest member of your team...Lucas always has a good joke after practice.

If you could make the cover of any magazine, which one would it be? Why?...Time Magazine. If you make that cover you’ve done something special.

If you could cook dinner for one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? What would you serve him/her for dinner? I would cook for Jesus Christ and we would have steak.

The sport you’re the worst at...Swimming

If you were stranded on an island, what are the three essentials you’d need to have? I'd have a trampoline, A puppy, and an infinite supply of mango smoothies.

Who is your favorite athlete in a sport other than your own and why? Barry Sanders that guy was the best and never let it get to his head.

What is your biggest pet peeve and why? Kids that don’t cut their nails before I can handle a black eye but scratches give wrestling a bad name.

What is your favorite class that you are taking or have taken? I took a class called Renaissance Machine Design. Building trebuchets and hand powered cars, you can’t beat that.

Favorite wrestling move? Ankle Picks. They can be just so smooth

Who do you think will win the Super Bowl? Steelers 23 - 17
