    Throughout the 2007-08 season, IUHOOSIERS.com will sit down and get to know the Indiana men's cross country team with a series of question and answer sessions called "Setting the Pace". Freshman Andrew Poore is next on the list.

    If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
    I would go to England because they still speak English, and I am terrible at foreign languages. Plus, I wish that I had the accent.

    Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
    I see myself in a courtroom as a lawyer, not a criminal.

    Finish this sentence - Since coming to Indiana, I've learned:
    to not eat cafeteria food.

    What do you like best about Coach Helmer?
    I like that he is very thorough in explaining what we are going to do and why we are going to do it, and he has that competitive side to him rather than just a scientific approach to running. Plus, he has some sweet boots.

    Something that many people don't know about you is:
    I have never ridden a roller coaster.

    The teammate I most admire is who, and why?
    Although the older guys are all great influences, I admire Jordan Kyle because he does everything necessary to become a great runner and competitor. There aren't very many runners who are as mentally tough and smart as he is in a race. He was 33rd in the nation because of it.

    Name one thing that you wish you were better at?
    I wish I as better at Halo hands down. It gets really competitive when we play.

    What makes Indiana special from any other program?
    We are all similar in age, so I think that we get along very well, not to mention, that most of us are Indiana-grown. When we are as good as we want to be, having most of us grow up in small Indiana would be impressive.

    My favorite thing about Bloomington is:
    the Village Deli.

     

     

    What are your goals for this year?
    This year it is most important to learn from the older guys and grow as a runner. We have a lot of talented guys on the team, and I just want to get better and be a hard working member of a top twenty team.
