(Fun Facts, where we find out more about FCIAC athletes, was a regular feature on The Ruden Report Overtime newsletter. Until we start publishing the newsletter again, we are posting them here. We are dedicating this week, due to the absence of Thanksgiving games, to football players.)
A new Fun Facts with Staples’ Henry Beck.
What is your favorite pregame ritual that Staples football does? Not everyone on the team does it, but a lot of us go to church before games.
If you could replay one game from your time at Staples, which game would it be and why? I would replay the Greenwich game last year because they are our rivals and we don’t get to play them on Thanksgiving this year like we always do.
Favorite postgame meal and why? McDonalds with my teammates because it is our postgame ritual.
Favorite socially distant activity to do with friends and why? Wrecker swims at Compo Beach because it was fun team bonding.
What are you looking forward to the most as a 2021 boys lacrosse team captain? Getting the chance to actually play this year and make a run for the state and FCIAC championship.
Favorite memory from this year’s football season and why? Getting to win our last game on the same field we started our careers at.
