20 Questions With Tom Foos

1-When did you start playing football? I started playing when I was in seventh grade 

2-What has been the highlight of your athletic career so far? I would say having a 70-yard punt at Hanover this year, or kicking the game-winning field goal there during my sophomore year. 

3-What are your goals for the remainder of the 2010 season? To improve as a kicker and help the team win the rest of its games. 

4-Who is your funniest teammate? There are a lot of funny guys on the team now, but I would say nothing has been as funny as when there was a whole special teams crew during my first three years here. 

5-Do you have any nicknames? Most people just call me 'Foos'.

6-What three words best describe you? Easy-going, patient, friendly. 

7-What is your favorite restaurant? Hot Rice! If that counts as a restaurant. 

8-Who is your biggest hero? This is a cliche, but I would say my parents. They have not missed a game in all four years. 

9-Dream vacation spot? Someplace warm. I am not a huge fan of being cold.

10-What is the top song currently on your iPod? "This Ain't No Love Song" by Trace Adkins.

11-Who was your childhood sports hero? Phil Dawson is the man. 

12-Do you have any superstitions or pre-game routines? I just like to relax and stay calm. I do not try to get too pumped up.

13-If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be? Probably someone that is filthy rich, just so I could see what it is like. 

14-What is your favorite TV show? I do not watch a whole lot of TV.

15-What is something most people do not know about you? I have never played soccer even though I am a kicker.

16-What is your biggest fear? Losing loved ones.

17-Besides your own, what is your favorite sport to watch at Defiance? Soccer is pretty entertaining sometimes. I catch a game every once in a while at practice. 

18-What is your favorite class or professor at DC and why? Dr. Gunsch. He has taught every digital forensics class I have had here. He has helped me through so much as well.

19-What are your plans after graduating from DC? I hope to be able to find a job in the digital forensics field in either law enforcement or business.

20-How has playing collegiate athletics at DC helped you in life? Being a part of collegiate football, I have met so many people that I know I would not have otherwise met. I have formed friendships that will last a long time. Also, the coaches are there for all of us and will do anything to help us out.
