    “On the spot: Davis Anson, undecided freshman”

    Freshman, welcome to the UA. So the first football game is coming up on Saturday, how do you feel about that?

    I’m pretty exited I am going to it. I got the ZonaZoo pass.

    Oh, you are set. How do you feel about UA pride? Obviously it’s a big deal around campus. What is your definition of UA, Wildcat pride?

    Wildcat pride? Sounds like just getting pumped up for the game and getting all excited and tailgating before. I’m going to hangout with a bunch of older kids before, a bunch of juniors that have experience so it should be fun.

    Upperclassmen definitely know how to have fun at the pre-games. You seem really excited to pre-game.

    Yeah I’m pretty excited (laughs).

    Excited for the (MTV) Video Music Awards on Sunday?

    I did not know about that. I don’t watch TV because I don’t have a TV in my dorm so … yeah.

    Not much of a pop-culture guy?

    Well sort of, if I could watch TV maybe I’d be more into it.

    So explain this wild T-shirt of yours?

    The band name is Fireworks and I don’t know really anything about it, just an old creepy man with a big head.

    That’s pretty exotic. Where are you from?

    Las Palmas, New Mexico.

    Welcome to Arizona. I notice you’ve got your Camelbak on you are all set for the Arizona climate.

    I am. I bought this backpack when I moved down here.

    Great investment for Tucson. Do you fill it up in between classes or like at the water fountains? Tell us a little bit about that.

    Probably every time I go back to the dorm I fill it up.

    Keeps your body hydrated?

    Very hydrated for sure (laughs).

    Do you bike around campus, long board, walk … what is your preference?

    My brother made me a bike, yeah, so I am definitely a biker.

    He made you a bike?

    Yeah he is a big racing biker so he made me like a six-gear bike. So, that’s what I have.
