What do you like most about football?

Benjamin Bates: "I just love the challenging aspect of it. The family aspect of it too. I love hanging out with my teammates. It's like the best time of the school year, the fall, playing football going outside and practicing everyday after school. It's a great time."

What's a sport you'd like to play?

"I'd probably say rugby. I don't know I've watched a couple of rugby matches and it gets pretty intense. It looks pretty dope."

Favorite subject in school?

"Probably physics. I like finding out how things travel and things like that. Right now I'm enjoying it right now."

Dream job?

"I do play the cello. It'd be really cool to play in an orchestra someday. But if not that, maybe an engineer or something like that."

When did you start playing the cello?

"I started playing it when I was four. I've stuck with it throughout my whole life. It's really something I enjoy."

Favorite athlete?

"Aaron Rodgers. He's the only reason the Packers are good."

If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?

"Probably Ronald Reagan. He's a great idol for me. Great leader. Great president. So I'd probably say him."

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

"Probably flying. I think it would be cool to fly around and look at people's heads."
