Ethan : So Emmie, what sports have you played while at OCA?

Emmie : “I’ve played volleyball and soccer.”

Ethan : What do you do to prepare for a game? Do you have any pregame routines?

Emmie : “No, not really. I really just hang out with my teammates and we just get each other excited.”

Ethan : So, do you have a favorite pregame meal you like to eat?

Emmie : “Um, not really. I guess I like to eat gummy bears before a game.”

Ethan : What music do you like to listen to?

Emmie : “My favorite music is Christian, country, and pop stuff.”

Ethan : What is the biggest lesson you learned while playing sports at OCA?

Emmie : “It’s definitely teamwork. You have to work together as one unit instead of just doing everything on your own. So just working with my teammates has been great.”

Ethan : What is your favorite memory of playing sports at OCA?

Emmie : “My favorite memory is when we played Oakwood this year and I scored my first goal.”

Ethan : Do you have a favorite quote:

Emmie : “Um, I don’t have a favorite quote, but my favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your paths.”

Ethan : Emmie, do you have any plans after you graduate from OCA?

Emmie : “Yes, I want to go to Clemson University and get a degree from there. Then, I really like photography and I want to start my own photography business.”
Ethan : So, Silas, what sports have you played while at OCA?

Silas : I've played soccer, basketball, cross country, and golf.

Ethan : Do you have any pregame routines?

Silas : Usually, I'll listen to music and try to relax and just be calm.

Ethan : Speaking of music, are there any specific songs you like?

Silas : No, it's just generally relaxing music.

Ethan : Is there a pregame meal you like to eat before a game?

Silas : Chick-Fil-A is pretty good.

Ethan : So, Silas, what is the biggest lesson you have learned while playing sports?

Silas : The biggest lesson is that practice makes perfect.

Ethan : What is your favorite memory of playing sports while at OCA?

Silas : Probably the first time golf won the state championship.

Ethan : So do you have any plans for when you graduate?

Silas : I'll go to Clemson and major in engineering.

Ethan : So, Silas, what is your favorite quote?

Silas : "Darkness can't drive out darkness, only light can do that."
