Quality Toyota Sports Spotlight: Running the floor with RundPublished 10:45am Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Senior Austin Rund has been a standout athlete for the Fergus Falls Otters for much of his time at Kennedy Secondary School.
Taking time from his busy life on the football field, basketball court and classroom, I sat down and talked to Rund about his time at KSS and beyond.
Q: What is your favorite subject?
A: I would say math. I like working with numbers and problem solving.
Q: Do you have any plans for next year?
A: I’d like to go to college and hopefully play basketball. I’m thinking about going into business and accounting.
Q: Do you have a favorite teacher?
A: I’m going to say my dad back in sixth grade. It was great just riding to school with him everyday and continuing with him throughout the day.
Q: What are three words your teammates would use to describe you?
A: Leader, funny and … good looking (laughs).
Q: What activities to you participate in outside of sports?
A: Choir, band, I am the tuba player, Wind Ensemble, NHS and I volunteer my time when I’m not in sports.
Q: What would you do with a million dollars?
A: Recently, the thing I’ve wanted to buy is a moped just to cruise around town on, so I’d get that right away. I’d save some for myself, for the future, and then give some to charity.
Q: What color moped?
A: Either a brilliant blue or kind of a gray.
Q: Out of the sports you play, what is your favorite?

Q: What are some of your hobbies other than sports?
A: My brother and I get some pretty intense ping-pong games going down in the basement at home. In the summer, I like to go kayaking on the lake.
Q: Who’s better at ping-pong, you or your brother?
A: Definitely me (laughs).
