Q&A with Eddie:
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to hang out with friends and family in my free time and playing other sports. High school leaves little time free time, so when I do have free time, I like to spend it around friends and family.
Favorite restaurant in town?
I’m a big fan of Hibachi and Asian Cuisine, so I’d have to say Red Plum.
Favorite subject in school?
Macro Economics. It’s just interesting to learn how decisions are made given a set amount of resources and a set of goals.
What are some reasons for your success?
I guess the biggest reason for my “success” is my consistency and devotion. I just feel that if you give a consistent effort and remain devoted, you will meet your goals.
Biggest influences on your varsity career?
I’d have to say the football alumni. I always have found it inspiring to hear about what past teams and alumni have accomplished, and I guess it helped me set a goal for myself as to what I wanted to accomplish.
Person you would most like to meet?
I’d have to say Tom Brady. I don’t necessarily root for him, and I’m not a huge fan of him, but I do respect him. He is the ultimate underdog, and has one of the greatest football minds ever.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I can see myself starting out my career in the field I choose to study in college.
