10 Questions With Ravens Guard Marshal Yanda

November 12, 2019
PressBox caught up with Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda to ask him about his favorite sports star as a kid, his favorite road trip and more.

PressBox: What's a bucket-list place you've never been to?
Marshal Yanda: Alaska

PB: Who was your favorite sports star when you were a kid?
MY: It would have to be Michael Jordan. I was a kid in the '90s, and he was making hay, so I'd say him.

PB: What was your favorite sports team growing up?
MY: The Iowa Hawkeyes. We didn't have a pro team in Iowa.

PB: If you weren't an NFL player, what job would you have?
MY: That's a tough one, but probably farming in Iowa.

PB: On a scale from 1 (terrible) to 10 (awesome), how good of a cook are you?
MY: I give myself a solid 6. I'm more of a griller, so my best smoked meat would be brisket.

PB: What's your favorite movie of all time?
MY: Another tough one. "Shawshank Redemption."

PB: What do you like to do on an off day?
MY: I spend time with my family. I don't do much on my off days during the season. Offseason, it would be fishing.

PB: What's your favorite road city?
MY: It would have to be Pittsburgh. They are in our division, and usually those are big-time games.

PB: What TV shows are you binge-watching?
MY: Last one we just watched was "Mindhunter" on Netflix. That was really good.

PB: What's your favorite thing about Baltimore?
MY: The food. The restaurants, the creativity, food we never had in Iowa, it's just on another level.
