<b>Q: What location is the farthest from the Washington D.C. metro area that you’ve traveled?</b>
A: I went to Panama this past summer. My sister did a volunteer program down there, working all summer, so I went to visit.
<b>Q: What is the best feeling one can have during a soccer game?</b>
A: Probably scoring a goal … especially from the sweeper position, because it’s pretty rare.
<b>Q: You’ll be studying engineering at Virginia Tech next year. What are you most looking forward to about the transition?</b>
A: Meeting new people and broadening my horizons.
<b>Q: As a soccer player, how do you react to people with a negative perception of the sport?</b>
A: I hate when I hear that kind of stuff: when people say, ‘Soccer players dive, they do all this.’ They just see stuff off the pros, little highlights. They’ve never been to a real high school game. Half the people that talk about it never come out to one of our games. … One of my friends, he always thought soccer was soft. He came to one game last year and his whole mindset changed about the sport.
<b>Q: What’s your favorite movie?</b>
A: "Armageddon." It just gets everything in there: action, sadness, humor.
