*Thomas’ answers are not listed and Ashton is not pictured*
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
Ashton: The opportunity to prove myself as a coach. As I went through the interview process it became apparent that there are great people/leaders here and that is what ultimately made my decision very easy to come serve MSUM.
Justin: I knew Coach Laqua from the recruiting process as a player in high school, so when we got cut at St. Cloud that familiarity was something that I valued. After a detour down to Texas originally, I was able to reconnect with him and the opportunity to play my last year and transition to coaching was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.
Cody: The people, the Dragon culture, and the opportunity to coach in my hometown.
Q: What's something you are excited for in MSUM's upcoming football season?
Ashton: I am excited to get to work and serve our players this season.
Justin: We are a young team with a lot to prove. I think that we can surprise some people and it will be exciting to see who steps up and shows out.
Cody: Helping our guys become the best version of themselves.
Q: Who is your favorite football player
Ashton: Antonio Gates.
Justin: Joe Burrow. I am also a huge fan of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Andrew Luck.
Cody: Randy Moss.
Q: Which team in the NFL is your favorite?
Ashton: The LA Chargers.
Justin: Unfortunately, I am a Jacksonville Jaguars fan. My family is split Packers and Vikings, and I didn't want to break the tie. I liked the colors and like Florida in general, so Jacksonville it was.
Cody: The Minnesota Vikings.
