The Kentucky State Thorobreds are 3-1, ranked 6th in the latest HSRN poll and are prepping for this weekend’s game in the Circle City Classic, a neutral site event against the reigning champs in HBCU D2: the Albany State Golden Rams. Despite all this activity this week the good people at the KSU Sports Information offices and four of their football players were kind enough to find the time for one of Balladeer’s Blog’s brief Q&A interviews. So let’s help celebrate the Thorobreds’ 125th anniversary by getting to know some of their student athletes.
1. What was your proudest moment as a Kentucky state football player? A: My first homecoming game, it showed me the true tradition of HBCU’s, because alumni come back from all over the country to watch no matter how good or bad the team is doing, and it is a really big game, no matter how good your team is doing as well.
2. What aspect of Thorobred tradition prompted you to decide to pursue your football career at KSU? A: I just saw change in the future for all of us Thorobred football players because, all the players in the 08 class that I came in on was all on the same page, but because of internal mistakes, it has took us a while but this will be the year for change.
3. What would you say is your greatest asset as a football player? A: My greatest asset is my hand-eye coordination, the way I can adjust the ball and catch it consistently.
4. What title would you give a 30 For 30 documentary about this year in KSU football? A: The Rise
5.Why would you say your having the kind of season you’re having? A: Because of my hard work dedication and love for the game, and I also had to just wait for my time, and this is my time.
6. With Halloween coming up, what is your favorite horror film? A: I don’t really like to watch horror films, but the movie “the Strangers” gave me nightmares for a few years.
7. What video game would you say you could kick your coach’s butt at? A: I’ll kick my coaches but in Diddy Kong Racing for Nintendo 64
8. If Balladeer’s Blog does a road trip for one of the Thorobreds home games where should I eat? A:Cracker barrel
