Q: Do you play golf? Troy from South Carolina
A: Thanks for your question Troy! While I've played golf before, it's not something I do on a regular basis. And while I can't play like the pros, I love to watch them play on television! I especially like watching Tiger Woods, he's amazing! It really goes to show that when you combine talent with hard work and a great attitude, the sky is the limit! Hopefully after my high school baseball season this year I'll be able to get out and play a bit more!

Q: Which professional athlete do you admire? Peter from South Carolina
A: I'd say the athlete I admire the most is Tiger Woods. He has an incredible work ethic, and is one of the greatest competitors in the world. You could argue that there aren't many players in any sport as mentally tough as Tiger. It was incredible watching him play through a knee injury at the US Open last year! And when many people doubted he could come back from knee surgery, Tiger worked really hard and rehabbed his knee back to healthcoming back better than ever! To me Tiger is not only an amazing athlete, he's an inspiration and amazing role model as well.

Q: What is your favorite NFL team? Jake from New York
A: Bear Down! My favorite team is definitely the Bears, Jake! Growing up in Illinois I've always rooted for Chicago and it's been really exciting to watch the team play this year. With so many new players additions it's been amazing to see them gel as a team on the field. I hope they continue to have a great year!

Q: Have you ever been nervous during an interview as the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® Earn Your StripesTM Sports Reporter? Adele from Arkansas
A: Great question Adele, and yes, I get nervous all the time doing interviews! Being the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® Earn Your StripesTM Reporter has been a blast, and I've learned a ton! But it took a lot of practice and effort to calm my nerves before interviewing an athlete or working with Karl. Just like with sports, I found the harder I worked on my interviewing skills, the better I got!

Q: Do you consider yourself to be a team player? Charley from Ohio
A: Charley, good to hear from you. Being a good team player is something I take a lot of pride in. One thing I've learned playing sports is that the most successful teams are those who play as together as a team rather than as a group of individuals. It doesn't matter how many points you score on the court or field if your team isn't playing well. There's no better feeling than helping your team win a game!

Q: How old were you when you started to play football? Sam from Massachusetts
A: Thanks for your question Sam. Football is something I've loved since a very young age. My parents tell me I threw my first football pass at three years-old! Growing up I would play in two-hand touch games with my friends. It wasn't really until I started high school that I began playing at a competitive level. Now I'm a senior starting on my varsity team!

Q: Which pro football team do you think is playing the best right now? Beth from Illinois
A: Wow, that's a tough one Beth, there are so many great teams out there! Some standout teams at this point in the season would have to be Baltimore, New England, Indianapolis and New Orleans. There is still a lot of time left in the season though, a lot can happen!
