|Weapon of choice||Knuckleball||Student-conduct citations|
|Widely appreciated facial gesture||Makes hilarious face while throwing||Looks the other way while you’ve got a backpack that’s obviously filled with beer|
|Dislikes||Being pulled from a game early due to injury||Hall sports|
|Willingness to let you play Bond on his N64||Unknown||Frequent|
|Skills||Controlling knuckleballs at multiple speeds, fielding position, flummoxing opposing hitters||Playing various musical instruments, pulling off tie-dye, maintaining an interesting tumblr|
