Meet the Team: 10 Questions w/ AC
Updated: Feb 16
This article is part of a six-part series asking 10 questions to each person
who makes Weber State Weekly a reality.
Our goal: help our fellow Wildcats get to know the people behind the show.
In this installment of the “Meet the Team” series, we put our focus on AC.
AC is a proud member of the U.S. Air Force, and currently has season tickets to all Weber State sports.
He used to work in sports media and is very happy to be a part of Weber State Weekly.
While studying at Weber State, AC was a History major and a Geography minor.
1. What are some hobbies you have, outside of sports?
I wasn’t much of a reader when I was young, but I haven’t been able to stop reading for the last few
years. I’m super boring, so I like reading books about history or biographies. I have two sons who are my
pride and joy, and I absolutely adore spending time with them. I’ve learned how to play a few
instruments, and I like singing. I’ve also won a decent amount of money at trivia nights across the
2. Tell us something that few people know about you.
I speak four languages. When I was really young, I’d try to parachute off the back deck of our house
using the rain flap to our tent. That went about as well as you’d expect.
3. Why did you want to get involved with Weber State Weekly?
I went to breakfast with Sean and Chappy one morning and was talking to them about some things that
they’d like to see Weber State change. When they mentioned that there was almost no Weber State
content out there, I figured that we might have the right people and experience to make some serious
changes to give Wildcat fans more content.
4. How did you become a Weber State fan?
I didn’t grow up as a Weber State fan. My father is a Ute and my mother a BYU Cougar, so I grew up in a
household that was very, very divided. Because I’m not a lifelong Weber State fan like most of my
podcast partners, I kind of feel like the new guy on the block. I joined the military and had to travel
out of Utah for a while, but when I came back, I decided to study at Weber State. I went to my first
football game and I’ve been hooked ever since.
5. Who is your all-time favorite Wildcat?
I feel like it would be Damian Lillard, but I was at Weber State too late to catch him. For me, my favorite
basketball player is Jerrick Harding. I went to Alta High School, as did Josh Davis, so in football, he’s my
guy. Hawks fly together.
6. Which is your favorite piece of Weber State apparel that you own?
I have this purple, long sleeved, ¼ zip-up that I love. It’s perfect in any season but summer, and I feel
great wearing it on the golf course during the cooler months.
7. Which is the best Weber State game that you’ve ever attended?
It has to be the playoff game against Montana last year. That game was probably one of the two biggest
in school history, plus I had a killer experience. I actually got to be on the sideline for that game, which is
something that I’ve never had the chance to do before. I could hear all the trash talk, saw some
awesome football, and I got some amazing pictures. That’s not just the best Weber State game I’ve
attended - it’s one of the most fun sports experiences I’ve ever had.
8. What is your greatest athletic achievement?
I was playing in the intramural basketball semi-finals and my teammate got a steal. They threw it ahead
to me for a one-on-none fast break and I dunked it. Tens of fans in attendance went wild. I became an
instant campus legend, and I’m pretty sure that the school renamed the gym after me, but I’ll have to
9. Who are your favorite sports teams, other than Weber State?
I have a very wide spectrum of sports that I follow. I like the Utah Jazz, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles
Dodgers, Real Salt Lake, Arsenal (English soccer) and USA soccer, and the Utah Utes. If I could choose my
teams, I would NOT have chosen the teams that I cheer for, but I let my heart decide. I often joke that
I’m a cursed fan - sorry Wildcat fans!
10. What can the audience expect you to bring to Weber State Weekly?
They can expect me to be a well-informed, high-energy troll who will do his best to grind the gears of his
podcast partners. I also promise that I will always give my honest opinions, positive or negative, and I
won’t hold anything back!
