State title game. You’re in it. Which team do you want to beat most for the championship? Why?
St. Rita. They’re our rivals, and it’s always a great game when we play them. Two great programs.
If you could have your pick, what celebrity would you choose as your prom date?
What’s your favorite high school field to play at on the road?
Providence. It’s an incredible field. It’s like a minor league field.
Cubs or White Sox fan?
How many games will the Cubs win this season?
What’s your favorite baseball movie?
Ten years from now, when you’re talking about coach Brian Hurry, what’s the first thing that will come to mind?
That he’s a great coach. He’s a players’ coach, and every player wants to play for him. He’ll do anything for you.
Why Kansas for college?
It’s a great school and it gives me an opportunity to play in the Big 12. I love the campus, and it’s the place I want to be.
What do you like most about baseball?
The opportunity to compete. Being a pitcher, it’s just you and the hitter. It’s always a new battle.
Should Roger Clemens be in the Hall of Fame?
Yes. It was an era tainted by steroids, but he was the most incredible pitcher of his era.
