Greg Meyer: Who inspired you to play soccer?
Kyle Bednar: My high school football coach inspired me to play soccer because I sucked at kicking field goals, apparently.
GM: Nothing like having your dreams killed. Who is your favorite athlete?
KB: Pavel Nedved…only decent Czech player ever.
GM: Petr Cech? Come on, his last name even sounds like the country. Plus, he wears a helmet. What are some of your athletic honors?
KB: IM volleyball championship.
GM: That's what I've been chasing during my four years at Case. What are some of your hobbies?
KB: Umm…bonging beers?
GM: Once it hits your lips, it's so good! What is your best soccer memory?
KB: [Chris] Cservak and J Cot [Jordan Cottington] doing the scorpion to "I Like to Move It, Move It" before every home game.
GM: Classic song. What is your worst soccer memory?
KB: Losing to OWU in PK's my freshman year and getting knocked out of the NCAA tournament.
GM: Nothing like a last-second heartbreaker to top the list. What makes soccer stand out from other sports?
KB: You can kick someone in the groin and get away with it.
GM: So that's why all you guys stay on the ground so long after you get hit. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
KB: Hopefully doing nothing, but enjoying the mass amounts of money on the beach after I invent something awesome.
GM: Best of luck to you. If you could invite any three people to dinner, living or dead, who would it be and why?
KB: Kevin McCallister from Home Alone, the guy from Police Academy who makes all the noises with his mouth, and Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr because it would be a great dinner. Harry and Marv would probably make an appearance as well.
GM: Ahh yes the sticky bandits, New York City's most feared criminals. If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you?
KB: Sean Connery, enough said.
GM: As long as it includes an encounter with Alex Trebek. What's your least favorite thing about soccer?
KB: Getting hit in the face with balls.
GM: But you do it so well Kyle. If you could participate in any other sport, which would you pick and why?
KB: Professional lumberjacking, so I can grow a sweet beard and beat down foliage.
GM: Not to mention the awesome flannel shirts. What would we find in your locker right now that might surprise us?
KB: Kyle Dylewski.
GM: Who is the best athlete you've ever competed with/against and why?
KB: Anyone but Kyle Bigart.
GM: Any insight on how the upcoming season?
KB: We're awesome. In all seriousness we have a good freshman class that came in and everyone else is looking to step in the shoes of the seniors that left. We will definitely be competitive this year.
GM: Wish you guys the best of luck.
