Did you make many spring games or practices?

"I was at Central Michigan's spring game. Wisconsin's was that weekend, so we could not make that one. Northern Illinois Junior Day and Wisconsin's Junior Day."

Have you thought much about what camps you'd like to attend this summer?

"I already signed up for the Badger Camp and I am probably going to do the Big Man Camp at Minnesota. Maybe Penn State or Notre Dame's camps."

"I'm throwing the shot and discus. It is my first year ever doing it."

What about your high school team? Did you lose a lot from last year?
