From Courier Post Preseason Coverage

As part of our preseason look into South Jersey football, we want to know a little bit more about some of the region's players.

Kyle Pierce, a senior outside linebacker and wide receiver, talked over a variety of things with reporter Jared Steckler.

MORE: Garnets a tight-knit group

JS: So how's camp been going so far in your senior year?

KP: It's going good, we've been working hard together and have a lot of team chemistry. It's a good year to be a Garnet.

JS: What are you like off the football field, what do you like to do?

KP: Hang out with my friends and everything.

JS: How would your friends describe you?

KP: As a leader, on the field and off the field, and someone who works hard.

JS: Do you have any siblings?

KP: Yes, I have one older brother. He graduated from Haddon Heights when I was a freshman.

JS: What's your ritual like following a physical game?

KP: I usually go home, I rest up, I stretch, I ice any injuries I have, get a good night sleep, wake up and get ready for another day.

JS: Your coach seemed particularly impressed by the "togetherness" of this year's football team. Can you tell me about that?

KP: Yeah this year, we started off really strong working together. We have a number one goal, which is always be a Garnet, and so far we're following that rule. To be a Garnet is a family. We talk to each other with respect and encouragement. And when we talk to each other, we're not putting them down, we're putting them up and getting them going.

JS: You ever play any other high school sports?

KP: Yes, I played basketball.

JS: Do you have a favorite actor?

KP: Kevin Hart, I love that guy.

JS: A celebrity crush?

KP: Ariana Grande.

JS: Do you think there are any advantages of playing for and attending a small group one school like Haddon Heights?

KP: Well anywhere you go there's athletes, and group one has a lot of athletes coming out of it. It can go either way. You can play a good team, you can play a bad team.

JS: If you could have one dish to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

KP: Tacos
