Na’Shon DeShields is a senior on the William Penn basketball team and was kind enough to answer a few of our questions.
It’s noon on a typical Saturday. What are you doing?
I am probably playing basketball. If I am not playing basketball, than I am probably with my friends somewhere.
If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Notorious B.I.G. — I think he would have a lot to say about his struggles. I went through struggles myself and I think he would be able to relate.
Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant — I would like to hear them argue about who is better.
If you could switch places with any one person for a day, who would you pick?
I think I would trade places with Bill Gates.
What TV show needs to make a comeback?
Definitely Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
If you could travel anywhere for a month, where would you go?
I would probably go to Africa. I think it would be interesting.
Why did you start playing your sport?
My whole family played basketball. My whole family is pretty much athletic. I didn’t really have a choice. I picked up a basketball when I was little and haven’t stopped.
