Daily Herald Report

Name: Connor Skryd

School: Glenbard West

Year: Senior

Best thing about being an offensive lineman: We're up front and we get to be in the face of the defensive players. And I love getting to pull and go after the linebackers.

Worst thing about being an offensive lineman: Not being able to touch the ball, not even in youth league. That's why I liked playing center for a few seasons.

Don't tell my coach that: Don't tell him everyone on the team imitates the coaches.

If I could change one thing about football: Special teams. There should be more safety precautions. It just scares me a lot to see those big hits.

Team not on our schedule I wish we could play: I'd really like to play Glenbard North or Wheaton North. A lot of our guys know the Glenbard North players and grew up playing the Wheaton North players.

How I'll celebrate if I score a TD: I like what the Vikings did with the Duck Duck Goose thing.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat: I'd say Snapchat. I like keeping up with my friends and the news on there.

What I like best about my school: I like the traditions we keep going and the history we have.

Something about me that would surprise you: I hate when attention is put on me by others. I get pretty shy. I don't mind bringing attention to myself, it's just when others put attention on me.

Other sports I play: I wrestle and I throw in track and field. The only break in the year is the Sundays in between sports.

Favorite actor: Either Johnny Depp or Matt Damon. The Martian and Pirates of the Caribbean are good movies.

Favorite actress: Margot Robbie. I really liked her in Suicide Squad and (The Legend of) Tarzan.

Favorite athlete: (Minnesota Vikings players) Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith. They're both shut-down players.

Favorite musician: I like James Brown a lot.

The stat
