Timeout with Oscar Toledo
November 1, 2012
Q: What are your favorite sports and why?
A: Football and basketball because both sports teach you about homework, and you create a bond with your teammates
Q: Who is your favorite professional athlete and why?
A: Kobe Bryant because he leads his team and never gives up on a play.
Q: How do you feel about drug/alcohol testing at the high school level? Should it be random or should everybody on a team be tested at least once during the season?
A: I agree with random drug testing. If you want to be a student-athlete you shouldn’t be doing drugs.
Q: If you saw a teammate using drugs or alcohol, what would you do? Would you talk to him about it or turn him into the coach?
A: I would tell the teammate to stop what he’s doing. If not, I probably tell the rest of the team to tell him to stop.
Q: The Olympics just ended. How much of the coverage did you watch and what sport did you enjoy watching the most and why?
A: I enjoyed watching swimming and Michael Phelps, and watching the USA winning most of the time was just awesome. Michael Phelps was a beast.
Q: Do you have any hobbies, and if so, what are they?
A: I like to play pick-up basketball with my friends.
Q: Do you have a favorite TV show?
A: The Office.
Q: What is your favorite food?
Q: If you could change one thing about your high school, what would it be?
A: Longer lunch period.
Q: What sport isn’t offered at the high school level that you think should be?
A: Mixed martial arts.
Q: After graduation, where do you plan to attend college and what are you looking at in terms of a major?
A: I haven’t decided yet.
