Q&A with Freshman Defensive Back Jared McClure

Q&A with Freshman Defensive Back Jared McClure

Aug. 16, 2000

Name one player you would not want to go up against if your soul was on the line?
From what I have seen so far on the college level, I would not want to go up against (fellow freshman linebacker) D. J. Williams.

Who in your family do you idolize?
I would say I idolize my dad, David. He had a rough life growing up and turned out to be a very successful man. He’s always there for me and knows just when to give me the right advice.

Some people would be surprised to learn this about you?
That I am from the state of Pennsylvania and I love to surf. Ever since I was little, I have read surfer magazine.

Who do you think is the best player ever at your position?
Most of my playing career has been spent at running back, so I would have to say Barry Sanders. Before he retired, he was far and above everyone else. His moves and use of speed was unlike any other back out there.

Which athlete’s life would you like to borrow for a day?
I would love to be Michael Jordan for a day. He lives a very classy life. I think he is a nice role model and he is raising a great family. He seems so happy.

What is your favorite TV show?
It is a new show. I love to watch the Survivor show. It is the greatest concept to watch. All that real life drama is so much better than the soap operas during daytime. I could totally guess who will be kicked off at the end of the show. I feel like I know all the characters personally by now.
