Daily Iowan: If your teammates could describe you with one word, what do you think it would be and why?

Colten Rastetter: Most people call me “Farmer” because I grew up in a small farming community, so I’d say that.


DI: What’s your favorite movie?

Rastetter: Oh, I’m a big Marvel guy, so any of those movies.


DI: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

DI: If you could close one fast-food chain because of disgusting food, what would you pick?

Rastetter:  I would say Burger King.


DI: What’s your favorite sitcom?
