Get to Know: Kristen Champion

Sports Reporter

QR: What separates soccer from other sports?
KC: I like soccer because it’s an underdog sport. I’ve always loved soccer since I was little. I’ve just grown up playing it, my little brother played it and I never played any other sport. It’s so enjoyable to have everyone on the team just connect so well and get the ball into the back of the net. It’s a feeling you have to understand.
QR: Who is your favorite soccer player and why?
KC: David Beckham, just because he has grown from a young player and brought soccer to the United States, so he’s a big idol in my eyes.
QR: If you had to pick one professional soccer team to save the world in a match against aliens, which team would you pick?
KC: If it came down to that situation, I’d have to go with Barcelona. They are incredible and we kind of play like them.

QR: What is your favorite TV show?
KC: MTV’s Catfish.
QR: Who is your celebrity crush?
KC: Tom Hardy. He played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
QR: Where is the best place to grab a bite in San Marcos?
KC: Definitely Garcia’s. I’m in love with their food. It’s well priced, not too expensive, it’s really good for college kids and the food tastes great.

QR: Pick three people (dead or alive) to share a meal with.
KC: Michael Jackson, Pele (Edison Arantes do Nascimento) and David Beckham.
QR: Would you rather have a dragon or be a dragon?
KC: I would rather be a dragon, because you can fly around and catch stuff on fire.
QR: Would you rather have legs as long as your fingers or fingers as long as your legs?
KC: I guess fingers as long as my legs. I don’t want tiny, little stubby legs. I don’t even know how it would work.
