Q&A With Jayden Blazosky
D9Sports: What is your favorite sport to participate in and why?
JB: My favorite sports are football and baseball. I’d prefer to watch baseball over football any day though.
D9Sports: What is your favorite memory, moment, game from playing high school sports?
JB: My favorite memory from high school sports is probably either our football game against Union/ACV my sophomore year because it snapped a 12 game losing streak, or beating Clarion in a baseball game that came down to the wire last season.
D9Sports: Why do you play high school sports?
JB: I play sports because I like competing and making memories with my friends.
D9Sports: Who has had the most influence on your athletic career and why?
JB: My Mom, Dad, and Uncle Jamie have had the most influence on my athletic career. They’ve driven me all over the place for different tournaments and camps, and/or paid for everything I’ve needed to be as good as I can at the sports I play.
D9Sports: If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be and why?
JB: I don’t think I would change anything.
D9Sports: If you could be president for a day, what would be the one major thing you would do?
JB: If I was president for a day I’d probably give an executive order to build Keystone an indoor athletic facility and get all new uniforms and the best equipment for all of our sports.
D9Sports: What is your ideal place to live? County, City, Suburb? Why?
JB: I’d like to live in a city someday because I think that there’s more things to do and a lot of other opportunities that I won’t have in Knox.
D9Sports: What would someone who doesn’t know you be surprised to find out about you?
JB: Someone who doesn’t know me might think it’s kinda cool that I’ve been to half of the MLB ballparks across the country with my mom.
D9Sports: What is your strongest subject in school?
JB: My strongest subject in school was definitely not chemistry.
D9Sports: If there was one period in history or one event in history you could go back to, what would it be?
JB: If I could go back to a period in history it’d be the end of my sophomore year when we were picking classes to take as juniors. I would have chosen tech science instead of chemistry because I was really bad at chem.
D9Sports: What question do you wish I would have asked you? And what is the answer to it?
