Six Star — The most influential person
Stefaan—Really I couldn’t boil down. It comes to two people; my father and Marquette King. * Because sometimes it’s difficult financially
Six Star — What camps did you attend during the off season
Stefaan—I only attended one camp last summer and that was the invitational in Burbank. Although I was invited to smaller specialist camps around my Oklahoma. From that camp I learned how to correct my stance and aim point.
Six Star — What things did you improve on during the offseason
Stefaan—The two main things that I feel I’ve mainly improved in along the year is the mental capacity in terms of staring on varsity for such a big time school in the state. The other major improvement to me would be kicking into the heavy wind which earlier was a difficult problem to overcome.
Six Star — What schools have shown interest in you
Stefaan—College interests include Ok State, OU, UCF, Arizona State. I only have minor colleges currently contacting me.
Six Star — pregame ritual
Stefaan—Starts out with my beats and I listen to some OutKast essentials to get my I’ma good upbeat mood, then it changes into a focused or tunnel vision mood. I do my stretches from the goal line to the ten yard line. Once I finish those, I move on to my stationary stretching and I do that on the 36 yard line because my father was number 36. I get one football and I start on the goal line and on a hash and I work on drops all the way down to the 40yd line and turn to the sideline and go back to the goal line as I work on drops. Then I start in the end zone with one ball and work on punts at low contact points and high contact points to find the mid-spot. Once I find that mid-spot I continue on from there. Then I go to the opposite 45yd line and punt to the end zone. If it goes over, I back up 5 yards. The furthest I’ve gotten back is the 20yd line.
Six Star — Favorite song
Stefaan—My favorite song currently would be Ms. Jackson by OutKast.
Six Star — Favorite Class

Six Star — Best game
