  1. Where are you from?
    I reside in the woods high above campus. I don’t get many visitors except for the deer that I share the woods with and our cross country team whose course weaves around my place.
  2. How many teams do you represent?
    I represent the 18 different athletic teams on campus and also represent the college for great events like Open House, Orientation, and the NYS Fair.
  3. How were you chosen to be school mascot?
    I was chosen the school mascot after I finished 1st in the Tough Mudder mascot competition this summer and after I mastered typing with four fingers.
  4. Do you have any friends that are mascots?
    I haven’t left Alfred much. I am not a big city sort of guy. I run into Li’l Alf (the Alfred University mascot) when downtown every once in a while.
  5. What is your favorite campus event?
    Homecoming and Hot Dog Day are my two favorite events. Big Crowds mean more hugs, pictures, and High 4’s.
  6. What do you consider the ideal fan?
    Any one that is Loud and Proud and bleeds blue & gold.
  7. What’s it like to be a mascot?
    It is always warm, people want to have their picture taken with me, and I get a lot of hugs. Sort of like the paparazzi is following me at all times.
  8. What do you like to do for fun?
    I enjoy chopping wood, feeding my oxen, watching the Boston Red Sox play (Fear the Beard), and watching Duck Dynasty.
  9. What is your favorite Broadway play?
    It is a tossup between Oklahoma and Annie Get Your Gun
  10. What is your favorite New York State destination?
    I really enjoyed visiting the NYS Fair. Lots of activities, great food, and I had my picture taken a ton.
