A few weeks ago I interviewed my friend Tyler Wombough about his college football career. Since then my classmates have given me some other questions to ask him in a follow-up interview. This past Monday I had the privilege to do this follow-up interview with him about both his major at DelVal and the fashion show I mentioned in the post about my last interview. He laughed when I told him what the interview was going to be about.
Rachel Lyle: What year are you?
He seemed hesitant to answer this question and seemed unsure what to say.
Tyler Wombough: I am a transfer junior
RL: Why did you choose delval?
TW: Football was big reason and the school is only 40 minutes away from my house.
RL: What is your major?
TW: My major is Business management
RL: What are some of the things you do as a business management major?
He had a confused yet thoughtful look on his face when I asked this one but finally answered with this.
TW: Well, I take a lot of management courses, a lot of marketing courses, a lot accounting courses, and a lot of small business management courses. Those are some of the courses I’ve taken after I came here.
RL: What is your favorite part about being a major? Why?
He didn’t take very long to answer this one he just went right into enthusiastically and excitedly.
TW: It’s a field I want to be in cause I want to own my business. It helps me a lot with being in tune with how I manage things, how I do my own accounting, and how I run things.
RL: What was your favorite class so far? Why?
TW: Public Speaking was my favorite class because my teacher Curtis-Beaman made it fun and I don’t mind talking in front of people.
After he said Public Speaking I said that I hated that class and then he smiled and laughed and told me why.
RL: You are on the football team and you participate as a model in the fashion show. How do you your teammates react to this? Do you ever get teased or made fun of?
He laughed a little bit when I asked this question and
TW: No, there isn’t any teasing. Mostly we just laugh it off and don’t really bring it up at all. We all kind of do our own thing when we go out on stage. (He’s not the only athlete or football player who is a model in the show.)
RL: How many years have you been a model in the fashion show?
TW: I have been in it for 2 years.
RL: Which one was your favorite so far? Why?
TW: Last year was my favorite because it was my first year participating and all the scenes were cool and fun especially the Devils scene. (For those of you who don’t know the Devils scene was an all males scene where all of the males who participated picked a girl prior to the show who they know would be in the audience and escort her to a chair waiting for her on the stage. They would then basically seductively and sexually dance for them or on them, such a lap dance or something similar. All of the males who participated were did this at the same time and they wore no shirt or wore something that made them look sexy. We got in trouble for it one of the males took it a little too far, so we won’t be doing something like that again anytime soon.)
RL: What has been your favorite scene so far? Why?
TW: My favorite scene so far was the Devils scene last year because we each got to show off on stage and go crazy and do our own thing.
RL: Are you planning on being a model in the show again next year?
TW: I will possibly participate again next year but it depends on who is going to be doing it.
Here’s when I went in a whole new direction with the interview.
RL: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
He rested his chin in his hand with a quizzical look on his face for this one while he contemplated his answer.
TW: I would be a Firework crayon. Every stroke a would be a different color because I’m different and I don’t mind standing out.
RL: If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
He contemplated this on for a little bit but not as long as the one about the crayon. The answer seemed to come to him a little easier for this question
TW: I would be a dog because I would have a very simple life. I would be loved by everybody, get walked a lot, wouldn’t have to clean up after myself and would get to sleep basically all day.
So that was my follow-up interview with Tyler. I discovered with this one that we have very similar answers to the last two questions. The differences being I would choose Sky Blue for the Crayon because I’m not afraid to be different but I don’t want to be in your face about it and I would be a cat because I would get to be fat and lazy and wouldn’t have to exercise and no one would care or judge me for it. I would also be allowed to sleep for like 18 hours a day and not be judged for it.
