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

country.


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

double-check.


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!
