PressBox caught up with Loyola lacrosse's Jacob Stover to ask him about the bucket-list place he's never been, his favorite movie of all time and the show he's been binging lately.
What's a bucket-list place you've never been?
Jacob Stover: Bora Bora
If you could trade places with any movie or TV character, who would it be?
JS: Jack Bauer
Who was your favorite sports star growing up?
JS: It's my pops, you know that one. My old man. [Jacob's father, Matt, was the Ravens' kicker from 1996-2008]
How would you rate your cooking skills? What's your favorite dish?
JS: My girlfriend pushes me to [cook]. I'm working on that. On a scale of one to 10, I'd say it's a six. That's being nice to myself. I'm a great breakfast guy. I make really good breakfast. I've always been good about some pancakes; waffles, I'm great at. I'm great making eggs, birds in a basket. I've got to work on the bacon. I'm good at making grilled chicken, I will say that. For grilled chicken -- broccoli, asparagus, I'd say that's what I go to.
What's your favorite thing to do on a day off?
JS: I love hanging out with some of the guys. … [My girlfriend and I] used to go down to Georgetown or we would go to the mall or something, just kind of get off of campus, kind of travel a little bit wherever we could within the day.
What's your favorite movie of all time?
JS: It would be "The Goonies" and "The Sandlot." Those are the two.
What's your go-to karaoke song?
JS: I'm a country guy. I love "Bonnie and Clyde" by Travis Tritt. I love Travis Tritt. Or Alan Jackson's "Drive."
What's your favorite city or campus to visit on the road?
JS: If we spent more time, I feel like it would be UNC or Duke. I loved visiting UVA. I thought it was a really cool campus.
What book are you currently reading?
JS: It's a Christian book. It's the "Book of Proverbs." It's like a 10-minute daily devotional, and it's helping me with my life and my walk with Christ and has helped me with how I'm trying to live my life on a day-to-day basis.
What show have you been binging lately?
"The Good Doctor." I've really started watching that. I caught up on it, and now I'm kind of waiting until every episode comes out on Mondays. Or "Vikings." I was waiting until "Game of Thrones" came back on, so I just started watching "Vikings," and that's really good.
