Preseason Football Q&A: Blake Lingruen

The fourth in a series of Q&A sessions during preseason practice

Redshirt junior Blake Lingruen played in every game during 2002 and made his first career start at Purdue. Lingruen developed into a very solid, consistent player last season and will be asked to take the majority of snaps at center this fall for the Deacs.

This is a continuing series on wakeforestsports.com. Find out below how to submit your own question for a future Q&A.

Q: What is your most memorable sports moment?

BL: Shellacking Oregon in the Seattle Bowl.

Q: Who is the funniest guy on the team?

BL: Chad Rebar tries his best to be, but just doesn't get it done. I would have to go with Brian Woychik, the kid is just plain comedy.

Q: If you could only beat one team in the ACC this year, who would it be and why?

BL: Florida State because we're still bitter about last year's loss.

Q: What is your ideal way to spend a Friday or Saturday night during the offseason?

BL: Hanging out with friends and trying to stay out of coach Grobes' knot head group.

Q: Who on the team has the most style?

BL: AY (Anthony Young). The kid has never worn the same outfit twice.

Q: What is your favorite spot on the Wake Forest campus?

BL: The new football lounge.

Q: What is your favorite place to vacation?

BL: Well if you asked my mom, she would say its Disney World.

Q: Name a few CD's that you've been listening to lately.

BL: Taproot, Linkin Park, Audioslave and you will never find me without Incubus or Coldplay.

Q: What are the best and worst parts about gamedays?

BL: The best part is owning the opposing team and the worst part is missing the great tailgate parties I always hear about.

Q: What is one goal that you've set for yourself this season?

BL: Play my best on every play, and to do whatever is possible to get the Deacs back to a bowl game.
