Q: What is your favorite sport?

A: Soccer and football. Are there any other sports?


Q: What would you do if money were not an issue?

A: I would research local sports history as if it were a full-time job, and travel the country to watch sports events.


Q: What makes you feel young?

A: Staying connected to the high school sports scene.


Q: What is your favorite Frederick tradition, past or present?

A: I miss the White Star hot dogs and Snow White burgers -- a pair of "old" Frederick staples.


Q: Is there something about you that people might be surprised to learn? 

A: Despite my strong sports connections, I spent eight years as a college professor of journalism. That, or the fact I competed in the US Olympic Festival trials for Team Handball.


Q: What is your pet peeve?

A: People with no motivation.


Q: What are your hobbies?

A: Compiling the complete history of Maryland high school football.


Q: Which teacher inspired you most and why?

Q: What is your favorite childhood memory?

A: Attending an Orioles game with an eight-grade group of friends, where we raised all the money on our own.


Q: What is the best compliment you have ever received?

A: Although we might disagree, at least you were fair.
