Q: Who is the funniest guy on the team, the best prankster, and why?

Zach Collins: I think the best prankster on the team would probably have to be Rem Bakamus. I can’t tell you some of the jokes he’s played, but he has played some jokes on guys in the locker room. But we love him. He keeps it real light in the locker room. I’d say the funniest guy just because of the things he says, probably Josh Perkins. Josh Perkins is probably the funniest guy overall.

Q: What TV show, reality show, whatever, has the attention of this group of guys?

ZC: At the beginning of the year we all kind of had our own little shows, our own little tastes. Right now almost everyone on the team is getting on Game of Thrones. I recently got on it and now it seems like everyone on the team with exception of maybe two people we’re all watching the show.

Q: Do you get together and watch it?

ZC: Some of the guys do, but I’m really behind. Some of the guys are on Season 4, Season 5. I’m on Season 2 so I have to catch up before I hang out with them.

Q: I hear you have a pretty good voice? Who on this team can sign, who would pass a couple rounds of The Voice?

ZC: Like you said, I’m a pretty talented singer myself. I haven’t really had anything professional yet but that may be on the horizon. I’d say Zach Norvell and Josh Perkins are probably up there with me. They’re not quite at my level but they’re right behind me. We all could be doing something in the future that involves our voices so look forward to that, possibly.

Q: Your favorite group or musician?

ZC: My favorite band is probably Green Day. I guess they’re kind of old-school now, they haven’t really come out with a lot but they were big when I was growing up. My favorite rapper is probably Drake because he has such a variety of music. I also like Logic, I’m waiting for him to come out with something special this year. Just a variety of music.
