PERSONAL

Three words to describe yourself?  Integrity, Ambitious, Dependable

Do you room with athletes? What's that like?  I do, with my teammate Justin Watson. We’re both basically on the same schedule, so it’s nice to live with someone that respects your time, your space and your need to get sleep.

What part of campus do you live on?  East Campus

What is a fun fact about yourself?  My ears are completely different from one another. One’s normal, and the other doesn’t have that ridge in the middle. Apparently I was laying on it while in my mom so it never formed.

Where is the coolest place you've traveled?   I’ve been to Breckenridge, Colorado a few times to ski and visit family. It’s awesome out there.

Favorite TV show or program?  First Take (ESPN)

What do you like to do on your spare time?   Relax and sleep

Favorite Holiday?  Christmas

Favorite musical artistJ. Cole

Are there any songs you know all the lyrics to?  There are a lot, but the ones that stick out as being the first I was able to remember the lyrics to are Changes by Tupac and Lose Yourself by Eminem. 

Celebrity Crush?   Melanie Iglesias

What are three things that are on your bucket list? Travelling outside the country and going to Game 7 of an NBA Finals.

What reality show/ game show would you go on?  Family Feud


SOCIAL

What social media platform are you most active on?   Twitter (@jk_toolive)

What is your favorite emoji?  🤔🙄 Either the deep-thinking face or eye-rolling face. Applicable in so many situations.


HYPOTHETICAL

Who would you like to trade places with for a day?   LeBron James

What actor or actress would you want to play you in a movie about your life?  Will Smith

If you were an animal which one would you be and why?  An eagle, because they have the freedom to do what/go where they please and they’re respected & feared in the skies.

If you were a DJ, what would your name be?  DJ Too Live

If you could live in any decade, which would you choose?  I’d start my adulthood in the 90’s instead of being born then. It was a revolutionary time for hip-hop and new technology and I’d want to witness that firsthand.

If you had one wish, what would it be?  That my future children will never want for anything

If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Chicken Alfredo

What superpower would you want, or what superhero would you want to be?  The power of teleportation would be dope, kinda like Nightcrawler from X-Men.

What cartoon character would you be?  SpongeBob. Such a carefree guy.

Talent you would most like to have?  I like to think that I can sing, especially in the shower, but I’d really like some Chris Brown or Trey Songz vocals.

AS A BLUE HEN

Most memorable moment as a member of the Blue Hens?  Beating William & Mary last year on a last second field goal.

Any superstitions?  I sit in the hot tub on gamedays for exactly 10 minutes, not a minute more or less.

What do you and your team do to get students to go to your meets?  Try to be the best people we can be in the classroom and in the community, and also supporting other teams at their games.

What's your game-day playlist?  For about 75% of our time before the game, I’ll listen to a lot of Future, Meek Mill, & Kanye West to get the blood flowing. Then for the remaining time, I’ll listen to some Anderson .Paak, J. Cole & Chance the Rapper to get my emotions in check right before we go out.

What was the best advice ever given to you?   Work as hard as you can in the classroom because you won’t be playing sports the rest of your life.
