    How did you hear about Tradition Football: I watched videos on Youtube

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues?
    • What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Yes, NCAA 11 & now NCAA 12, with people on Operationsports.com and Gamebattle.com

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?
    • I've been playing video games since I was 4 and I have played online since 2007

    3. What type of player would you say you are?
    • I am a competitor by nature but I know how to take a loss. I consider myself knowledgeable with sports and show sportsmanship.

    4. Our community consists of a more mature bunch and the average age is somewhere around 28-30 years old. How do you feel about any differences or similarities between our population and your age?
    • I have always said age is just a number. I like being around older age groups just because of their maturity level. I like having good/real discussions with people and I find that the older age group provides that.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?
    • Yes, I do understand the rules but I have a few comments. I play a hard nose physical type offense just like my high school team and the Wisconsin Badgers. I constantly run the ball because that is what I know but I do change up the running plays. I throw only when I have to with the occasional PA pass. Is this alright to do?
    • Another thing I like to do on defense is implement what my favorite DC's in college football do. I run a risk/reward type of defense like DeRuyter did for Texas A&M with sending someone on a blitz on most every play. I mix it up with zone/man blitzes so my question is this alright as well or do I need to change my game play up more? I don't mind changing my style I just need to know.

    6. Please tell us a little about yourself. We want to get to know you and hope that you will be around for a long time.
    • Born and raised in Longview, Texas and I have now found my new home in College Station, Texas. I went to small 5A school and participated in TSA, Football, band (to acquire my arts credit), and Baseball. I played CB/WR in Football and LF/CF in Baseball. After graduation I played one year of college baseball at LeTourneau University before transferring to Texas A&M where I acquired my degree in Kinesiology Education. I now play Baseball in a collegiate league in Houston, Tx during the summer and also in a Mexican league here in town. I live, eat and breath sports and I have learned a lot from them so it is my passion. I believe in a lot of the "old school" life lessons that my father grew up with. The outdoors is where I belong and I am constantly on the move or I will get bored. Video games has always been my thing to get away from everything and I will play them until I die. Being laid back is my style but I am very organized and get everything done on or before deadlines.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community?
    • I understand how to build great comradeship with others coming from coaching players, and playing with others. I see myself fitting into this community due to my high maturity level for my age because of the obstacles I have faced in my life.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO?
    • New friends because I love meeting new people and seeing what I can learn from them.

    9. Situation: You are participating in a league game when your opponent clearly breaks the league or site rules. What do you do? How do you handle the situation?
    • First, I would inform the player if he knew the rule he broke and if not explain to him what the rule means. Secondly, if he keeps doing it I would inform the commissioner of the league.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league setup?
    • I have looked around and I want to participate in any NCAA Online Dynasty. I am already in one league from a different site and I would like to be in one more.

    Welcome to TSO JB

    In regards to your few questions, whichever league you end up in just ask the commish his opinion on your gamplay style bud.

    Application approved

    LeTourneau was a school that looked at me when I played high school baseball in Waco, Tx. Ended up at A&M on an academic scholarship.

    Always good to have another Aggie on board! ;) Gig 'em!
