The Daily Iowan: What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?

Kyler Schott: I love fishing, ice fishing too. I play video games here and there. Nothing too crazy, but I like to play those. Fishing is my favorite though.


DI: Since you like video games, what are your thoughts on a potential NCAA Football comeback?

Schott: I mean, I wouldn’t be against it. I always played it when they were out. Once they went away, I kind of got away from playing football video games. I play Madden every here and there, but I play more of the Call of Duty stuff, all of that.


DI: What song or artist do you listen to before a game?

Schott: I listen to a lot of AC/DC before games. Also “Something To Be Proud Of”  by Montgomery Gentry. Tthat’s a good song.


DI: What’s your favorite TV show?

Schott: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Good show. Love that show.


DI: What’s your favorite movie?

Schott: Major League. That’s my favorite movie of all time easily.


DI: Do you have a favorite food spot in Iowa City?

Schott: Stella’s. I get the dundee burger. It’s got a fried egg, pickles, everything is on that. It’s so good.


DI: You used to wrestle. If you weren’t playing football, is that the sport you’d want to be playing in college?

Schott: Yes, no doubt. In high school, I probably wouldn’t have told myself that, but once I got here I realized how much I really missed wrestling. So, I would definitely be doing that.


DI: Did you have a favorite NFL team growing up?

Schott: Packers. I’ve been to like five Packers games, and I still watch them every week when we’ve got time.


DI: What’s the most interesting class you’ve taken while at Iowa?

Schott: I took this history of policing class — it was interesting. It was a lot about how policing was started back in the 1700s and what it was revolved around. It was an interesting class.
