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?

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: What is your favorite team?
