Q&A: Jake Sinkovec

With Signing Day done, Eagle Insider will be following up the 2009 class. This is the eight installment of a series of Q&A sessions. This time it is Jake Sinkovec, who took some time to talk with Eagle Insider.

EI: Which coach played the biggest part in your recruitment to BC?

JS: I would probably say Coach Yanowsky who was my recruiting coach at the time. He's not with them anymore because of the whole offense deal. I would have to say he played the biggest part, he was the one I contacted about my game film when I sent it to him. He kind of got me in there per say. So it would definitely have to go to him, because he was my connection there.

EI: What position have you been told you will be starting your BC career at?

JS: Outside linebacker as far as I know at this point.

EI: Have you kept in touch with any BC players or fellow commitments?

JS: No, I haven't talked to anyone from my own recruiting class.

EI: Who was your host on your official visit? JS: A lineman from Viator (Saint Viator High School), Emmett Cleary. But I was also with Nick Clancy, Emmett's roommate, who went to Joliet Catholic. I played against both of those guys in high school. I met a lot of the players but that was the room I stayed in, with those two guys. I like everyone I saw and met there.

EI: What was the reason you chose BC, other than big time football and great academics?

JS: First of all I was looking for my next level of education, I was going for education first. Boston College really provides the academics and athletics. But besides that it has to be the people. I really enjoyed being around them, like I said, they're just really good guys and guys I can see myself fitting in with. I just really like it out there. It wasn't about the big time football as much, it's the academics and all the guys that make it what it is.

EI: If I didn't choose BC, I would have gone to______.

JS: It was kind of a tossup. Previous to my offer to Boston College I wanted to do engineering in college. I had Air Force and Navy, which obviously are top engineering schools. So Air Force most likely because of engineering, that was the only tough thing for me with Boston College, was the whole engineering thing. But I am completely sure about my decision now. But that was the only little wrinkle I guess. I also don't know if I would have been able to handle the commitment of being at a service academy. So I am not too sure on that one. If it wasn't an academy, it would have been Miami (Ohio). But just for the reason that I wanted to go for academics mostly, which was my primary focus for choosing a school. I probably would have gone with Air Force since it has such good academics.

EI: Which home-cooked meal are you going to miss the most while at college?

JS: This is a real tough one. Both my parents make good food. I'll probably miss the steaks that my dad grills up the most.

EI: Funniest or most memorable moment or person from official visit?

JS: Their really wasn't one specific person. I just really appreciate how nice everyone treated me; it was just really nice. I liked how honest everyone was with me and it just gave me a good feeling.

EI: Hottest celebrity you would like to go out with?

JS: It is between Megan Fox or Jessica Alba, but probably Megan Fox though.

EI: When at a party, what's your best line with a girl?

JS: Oh god, I don't know. I don't even have an answer for that. That is tough one. I guess I don't have too many good pick up lines.

EI: How would you describe your game on the field at this point?

JS: Just being able to go out there on the field full speed without having to worry about making decisions, playing with as much intensity as I can.

EI: At this point is your game more sideline to sideline or built on power?

JS: I played free safety in high school. I am definitely not fast enough to play safety at BC. So I would say I am more of a sideline to sideline type of guy. Depends on what is going to happen to my body in college, how much weight I am going to put on. So that could change, but at this point I see myself more as a sideline to sideline kind of guy.

EI: What do you listen to before a football game?

JS: I don't listen to any music. I like to just be by myself. I like silence and to go through everything in my head before the game starts. I don't listen to music to get really pumped up or anything.
