Mt. Pleasant senior wide receiver/defensive back Joey Paul is looking for a strong season after missing a significant portion of last season due to injury. In Week 1, he had three catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.

Q: What's the best part about playing for a perennial playoff team like Mt. Pleasant?

A: It's a bonding experience. I like that we're like a family, and I like our high-energy practices and winning is definitely a plus.

Q: What else do you enjoy doing, besides playing football?

A: Playing baseball and just hanging out with friends.

Q: What position do you play in baseball?

A: Center field.

Q: What are your plans after high school?

A: I'd like to go to Seton Hill. I want to go for elementary education, and I'd play either sport (baseball or football).

Q: What is your favorite movie?

A: “Step Brothers.” It's pretty funny.

Q: What is your best memory involving the football team?

A: I would have to say Tuesdays with the team at Dino's (Dino's Sports Lounge in Greensburg) for wing night. It's a nice tradition we have.

Q: What is your motivation on the field?

A: I just try to play every down like it's my last, especially after last year. I tore my ACL in the second game, so I play every game like it's my last.

Q: Who is your favorite athlete?

A: (Chicago Bears wide receiver) Devin Hester.

Q: What is your favorite team?

A: The New York Yankees. I like Derek Jeter, and they are winners.

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

A: Hawaii, just to get away from everything and leave the phone at home.

Q: What is some great advice you have received?

A: The coaches tell us that if you don't know you are right, just go full speed, because you probably are right.
