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?
