What’s the best part about being on the track and field team? I would say the conference meet, because you get there and you’ve trained with these people the whole season. The amazing things you accomplish, you know that it’s through all the hard work you put in with your teammates every ...

How did you decide to play tennis at Oberlin? ST: For me, my high school didn’t have a tennis team, so I had never really played competitively, but I took lessons and always enjoyed playing and enjoyed watching it… and I thought, “So I’m at a D-III school, and maybe I have a chance of maki...

As an Arizona native, what made you decide to come to Oberlin? On my visit I really, really enjoyed the classes, which sounds kind of nerdy, but I definitely did. I also got along with the players. I just felt it was a group of guys I could be close with and I have, so it was definitely a good fit. Actu...

You graduated in 2009 as Oberlin’s all-time leader in every significant passing category. When you first stepped onto campus as the Quarterback Coach this summer, did it feel sort of surreal?

How did you first get into football? It was because of my dad. He played cornerback for Butler University and so he got me into it at a very young age. I was always playing and always watching football. We had this 100-pound punching bag and he would make me tackle it for practice. What made you choose Oberlin?...
