Why Central?
I knew it was a place that I could get a good education while still being able to play sports.

Your favorite professor and why
Professor Kremser. I’ve enjoyed the classes I’ve had with him and I really like his teaching style. He tries to make it seem like a business environment.

Favorite athletics memory
Winning the individual conference tournament my freshman year. Or every time I saw Ryan Shuey hit a serve. It’s a toss up.

Why you’re majoring in business management…
Well I have always had an interest in finance so that is my emphasis. I’d like to be a financial advisor or possibly own my own business.

Favorite Coach Tyler phrase
It’s a tie between “Gotta get that hit in” and “Grab your journals”

Most treasured possession
It would have to be my car. We’ve been through a lot and it is always nice to have to drive down to Kuyper with this Iowa weather.

Person past or present you’d like to have lunch with
John Seier… but he turns me down every time.

“I love tennis because…”
It is an individual sport but also a team sport at the same time and it is fast-paced.

Funniest person on your team and why
I’m not sure who is the funniest on the team, but Zane is probably the funniest looking.

Favorite Central Market food
Homemade pizza.

Artist past or present you’d pick to see in concert
Sonny Shotz from the Dean’s List.

Favorite websites
Twitter, ESPN.com, YouTube, Facebook, and of course central.edu

The thing you like best about your team
That everyone is pretty close and we always have a good time while still staying competitive in practice and matches.
