Jersey Name/Number/Significance of the name/number: Piranha, 42. The name ‘Piranha’ was given to me during a Quidditch practice, after annoying another Beater enough that I ended up with the bludger. And 42 is the meaning to the life, universe, and everything.

Why did you join Virginia Tech Quidditch? I saw someone wearing a Virginia Tech Quidditch t-shirt on one of my first visits to Virginia Tech. I figured that the sport would accept those who don’t play actual sports, so I joined.

Favorite Quidditch Game: The confetti match at RVA in November 2013. People were playing Quidditch to simply have fun, and I made friends with people from many different teams.

Worst Quinjury: I get beat in the face. A lot.

Fun Fact: I am an Eagle Scout.

Favorite Qudditch Moment: Before my very first match, when Jack quoted Lord of the Rings as a battle cry. It told me what sort of semester it was about to be.

What are you most excited for in Quidditch? Getting more of those beats that just make you stop and go… “Did I just…do that…?”
