A tall glass of beer, or a whiskey on the rocks.

Tell us about your first night of college:

I went to convocation and met up with a friend from orientation. I met her friends and we went to late night at the Union. After leaving late night we were walking on hillside road and some dudes asked us to come to a party, so we followed them. I spent my first night at second house knowing absolutely no one there, so shout out to those guys.

I want to get a masters degree and enter the field of sports medicine. Hopefully work for a D1 football team or the NFL.

Football, golf, and baseball.

Golf-golf or disk golf? The answer is 75+ either way.

Shirt and shorts for days, fam.

I like someone who’s smart, easy going, nice smile, and preferably shorter than me (sorry ladies, anyone over 5 feet is out, sad!)

Vape. Why are 15-year olds delinquents vaping in the high school bathrooms?!

“Trouble on My Mind” – Pusha T
“Caroline” – Amine

Huskies

Bulldogs and/or pitbulls. I’m allergic to cats and they’re the devil.

Why do you deserve to be Daddy of The Week?

I’m definitely the dad of my friend group and more of a daddy than Christian will ever be.

Why should people read The Black Sheep?:

It’s relevant news, written by students for students.
