Members of The Cavalier have decided to add a student-centered Q&A feature! This week, we get to know high school senior Ryan Kincaid.
Q: Who is your favorite teacher?
A: "Mr. Queen. He knows his stuff, and I enjoy Quiz Bowl."
Q: What are you most afraid of?
A: "The drivers today. I almost got ran over twice and someone decided to clog up the right turn lane into the parking lot."
Q: What is you biggest pet peeve?
A: "I hate people who pretend the know what they're talking about in a given subject."
Q: What is the best day of your life?
A: "I would say when drumline earned first place overall in the Portsmouth West Competition. It was a collection of four years of hard work that paid off."
Q: What are you most proud of?
A: "I am most proud of the fact that as an 18 year old people already look to me as a professional adult."
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: "Anything with mushrooms on it."
Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: "Full Metal Jacket. The first half hour of Full Metal Jacket is some of the best film ever written. It set the standard for the future stereotypical drill sergeant."
Q: What was one of your worst experiences?
A: "My entire first relationship. We don't talk about these things."
Q: Do you participate in any after school activities?
A: "I do. They have died down as the year goes on. At the start of the year, marching band took up most of my time. Then, in winter, I was busy with Quiz Bowl. I also see broadcasting as a year-round ordeal."
Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A: "I see 28-year-old me as a color commentator for a major sporting event."
