Throughout the Hoosiers' 2008 fall practice, IUHOOSIERS.com will sit down and get to know some of the freshmen football players a little better. In today's installment, we asked cornerback Peter St. Fort 10 questions on a wide variety of topics.
What football player did you look up to growing up?
I was really an offensive guy. I looked up to Randy Moss and running backs like Shaun Alexander.
What's your best football memory?
There are a lot, but running down another player from about forty yards back and stopping the touchdown and making them play another play was probably the best.
Why did you choose Indiana?
I love it here. Everybody's nice. Everybody gets along. The coaches are great, the community is great and the academics are great, and that's what I'm looking in to.
What person in your life do you look up to most?
My mom for sure. She raised five kids on her own and I'm the first of the family to make it and go to college, so I really look up to her.
What is something outside of football that would surprise most people?
I'm a very laid-back guy. I just like to have fun and get along with a lot of people and just relax.
If you weren't playing football, what sport would you be playing?
I would probably be a track person. I was pretty good in track at hurdles and the 400.
Did you have a nickname in high school? If so what's the story behind it?
I was called Peter Butter because every day I came to school with a bag of Nutter Butters, and everyone gave me the nickname Peter Butter.
How different is the level of football from high school?
It is very different. The speed, the pace of the game, and the maturity. Everybody came from high school being the best and everyone is the best out here and you've got to work hard. There is nothing easy.
What's your favorite food?
My favorite food has to be pepperoni pizza.
What are you thinking of majoring in and why?
I don't have a major yet. I'm exploratory, so I'm still looking.
