PressBox caught up with Johns Hopkins lacrosse's Kyle Marr to ask him about his favorite pregame meal, his favorite sports star growing up, his favorite campus to visit and more.
What's a bucket-list place you've never been?
Kyle Marr: I've never been to Hawaii, and I see a lot of cool stuff about it. Just a lot of different places to play golf and stuff would be kind of fun, so I think Hawaii would probably be it.
If you could trade places with any TV or movie character, who would it be?
KM: Probably Vincent Chase from "Entourage"
What's your favorite pregame meal or snack?
KM: For pregame meal, we go to Sammy's [Trattoria] down here in Baltimore. He's a big supporter of our team and it's really good Italian food, so it's chicken parm and pasta.
Who was your favorite sports star growing up?
KM: I didn't really have anybody in particular, just the guys that were on my dad's team were just a big influence. Merrick Thomson, who's now the assistant there, was probably one of my favorite players growing up. [Marr's father, Scott, has been the head coach at Albany since 2001.]
What was your favorite sports team growing up?
KM: The New York Rangers
What's your favorite movie of all time?
KM: "Old School"
What's your go-to karaoke song?
KM: Probably "Better Man" by Pearl Jam
What's your favorite campus to visit on the road?
KM: I'd probably say Syracuse. It's just the closest one to my house and I've played there two years in a row, so I've had a bunch of buddies and family members be able to come back and to the game.
What's the last book you read?
KM: The last book I read was probably a [memoir] written by Hank Haney about Tiger Woods.
What show have you been binging lately?
The new season of "Billions" started up and our whole house has been watching that as a group, so we've had some fun with that.
