Ashley, you have become so natural and relaxed with thesr interviews - easy to listen to. Fantastic job!! I will be cheering for Jake to get some time. In fact, these interviews have made me a fan of each player interviewed. We have some wonderful young men and women in our program.

A few more table top questions I ask my kids...

Super fast or super strong?
Super rich or super smart?
Go forward in time or back in time, what are you going to see?
Listener or teacher?
If you could have any animal over time and it would not hurt you or others (raptor, mastodon, tiger...), what would it be and why?
If you get to win a Bball game, do you do it by:
Half court shot
Steal and full court drive and layup
Shaking your defender so they fall down and hit jumper
Reject a dunk attempt at the rim?
Dunk over opponent at buzzer

If you get a chance to do the above, do you do it to your Dad, Bro-Sis, opponent, friend, teacher, coach, someone else?

I love the question about courage, keep asking that.

Maybe ask a childhood event that helped define him.

I ask the same questions about fly vs invisible and where would you live. Fun to hear that. I liked his boat answer.

I want to also commend you, Ashley, for your interviewing skills.
I agree that you give us long time BU folks some insights into these players.

Also, Jaden Owens is a budding online personality. Her future is definitely in being an online personality, and basketballer. Proud that she transferred to BU. You guys are really on a roll.

Let's hope for a wonderful 2022 football season.
