10 Questions With...
Jr. | Basketball
1. What is your favorite song?
It's all about the classic, timeless pieces. For those people in the 80s who thought their one hit wonders were the best James of all time are now in the regrettable stage of "did I really like that song" so naturally, I choose a more appropriate song: Johann Sebastian Bach cello suite No. 1 prelude in G minor!
2. What is your favorite part about Buffalo?
My favorite part about buffalo is definitely not the cold! So naturally, I would say the summer, I know that's a season and not really a part of Buffalo, however, there are a ton of festivals in the summer like the Italian festival on Hertel - that would be my favorite part.
3. What are three words you’d use to describe yourself?
Direct, frolicsome, and intrepid.
4. Do you have a nickname? If so what’s the story behind it?
Brooklyn. Back home people call me Brooklyn but here not so much. I think this started with my coaches Helen and Mark they always called me Brooklyn and I wouldn't answer to anything else.
5. What is your favorite T.V. show?
OMGoodness there are too many. My favorite TV show is probably anything on comedy central, but as a kid I was literally obsessed with this show Alias. Also, I want to give Dawson’s Creek a shout out because - I don't want to wait for our lives to be over - and not mention them.
6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Nothing really bothers me. Don't ever complain, we live in America, you have no excuses.
7. If you weren’t playing basketball, what sport would you choose?
That's hard I think I would play four - one for each season. Soccer in the fall, swimming in the winter, track in the spring and tennis in the summer!
8. What is your favorite quote of phrase?
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” - Jack Kerouac
And another: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
9. What’s your favorite moment as a Canisius student athlete?
My favorite moment as a Canisius Student athlete would be when I took a course on the Jesuits in Argentina. There was a travel component to Argentina and let me just say this course should be taken by every Canisius student! It was AMAZING!
10. What do you and your teammates do outside of basketball for fun?
My teammates and I quote movies all the time. For example, we can pull out full scenes of movies and quote every line. Bridesmaids, mean girls, and love and basketball to name a few.
