Daily Iowan: What’s your go-to throwback jam?

Keegan Render: My go-to throwback jam, probably “September,” by Earth, Wind, & Fire. It’s a good song.


DI: How would you describe your high-school self?

Render: Probably not much different than I am right now. I was kind of quiet and shy, but I don’t know. It’s been a long time.


DI: What’s your favorite homemade meal?

Render: My mom makes pretty good homemade tacos, so I’d probably say that.


DI: What’s your go-to Netflix show?

Render: I love “Supernatural.” I got introduced to it by my brother, and I love it.


DI: If you are playing Xbox or PlayStation, what game are you playing?

Render: Probably Fortnite or probably NFL.


DI: What would you be doing if you weren’t playing football?

Render: If I wasn’t playing football right now … I’d probably be out of college. Probably, hopefully, trying to become an athletics director.


DI: What’s the worst purchase you’ve ever made?

Render: My opinion, probably just a pair of shoes that I didn’t need, but I’m sure my girlfriend has other issues with that.


DI: What do you think she’d say?

Render: She’d probably say my truck. I thought that was a good purchase.


DI: Who’s the funniest person on the team?

Render: I’m going to say the Paulsen twins; I think they’re the funniest. I’d do both of them, especially together.


DI: What character from “The Office” do you relate to the most?

Render: I’d probably say Jim, I don’t know why. I’m just a pretty laid-back guy, just kind of go with the flow.


DI: Chipotle or Pancheros?

Render: Panch, every time. It’s the burrito.
