Fergus Falls’ David Schneck is a man of many talents. When not on the soccer field, basketball court or tennis court, Schneck is known to be a great singer and committed student.
I sat down with Schneck to discuss his life growing up in Fergus Falls and his time at Kennedy Secondary School.
Q: You’re a three sport athlete (soccer, basketball, tennis), what sport are you really dedicated to?
A: I really love tennis, I play that the most out of all three sports. But I really enjoy playing both of my other sports.
Q: Your coach mentioned you’re a great singer. What groups do you sing with in high school?
A: A cappella choir, chamber choir, and this year I’m probably going to be in a men’s group that is going to start up.
Q: What do you sing?
Q: Where has your singing taken you?
A: I tried out for the All State Minnesota Choir in February of last year and I made it, so this summer I went to a six day music camp where we sang about eight hours a day and performed a concert. We had really good conductors that were well known from around the country.
Q: Where is your favorite place to sing?
A: In my van (laughs) with my music I have in there.
Q: What is it that you sing along to?
A: Whatever’s playing I guess. Whatever I can sing to.
Q: Do you have a favorite artist?
A: Owl City
Q: Twitter, Myspace or Facebook?
A: I enjoy my Twitter. I’ve never had a Facebook or a Myspace. Twitter keeps me up to date with things.
Q: What is one thing that people don’t know about David Schneck?
A: When I was young, I had straight blond hair.
Q: Now that we’re on the topic of hair, would you say you have the best ‘fro in the CLC?
A: I’m not sure of any other guys who have ‘fros in the conference. Mine is pretty awesome (laughs). I’m just kidding, but I like my hair. I’m proud of it.
Q: What’s the upkeep?
A: Comb it in the mornings.
Q: What other things do you do besides play sports?
A: I really like my music. I’m in band, choir and orchestra. I really love to play the piano when I get home. It’s probably the first thing I do when I get home. I also enjoy watching movies.
Q: Favorite movie?
A: Forrest Gump
Q: Anything else?
A: I do enjoy my video games.
Q: Do you have a favorite?
A: Pokemon all the way.
Q: You have to pick one Pokemon, who are you throwing out there for your first battle?
A: (Looks off in deep thought) Oh boy, in the first generation I choose Arcanine.
Q: Do you know that last year Mike Millard’s proclaimed himself a Pokemon master?
A: Of course I do.
Q: Did you ever find yourself in a Pokemon battle with Mr. Millard?
A: Not in a battle, but every once and a while he asked me for advice on his team.
Q: Favorite subject?
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: That’s the question of the age I guess. I haven’t thought too much about it, but I could see myself being a teacher.
Q: Ten years ago, what did David Schneck want to be when he grew up?
A: It was probably an astronaut or a fireman or policeman I guess. Just average eight-year-old jobs that you want to be.
