TROY BUNKER

Masconomet Senior

What is your favorite subject in school?: American history.

What is your favorite play to run during a game?: Counter pass.

Is there any special meaning behind your jersey number?: I’ve always worn the number 14, since youth football. It’s always been my favorite number.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: Remember the Titans.

Who are your favorite college QBs to watch?: The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady.

How do you think the Red Sox will do in the playoffs?: They’ll win the World Series.

Do you have any pre-game superstitions or rituals?: I listen to the same playlist before every game. I drink the same drink and eat the same type of protein bar before every one.

What’s the best advice you’ve received before a game?: “Stay relaxed. You know what to do. Go do it.”

What’s your favorite sport to play or watch besides football?: I enjoy watching NHL hockey and I also play baseball.

What is the best sports game you’ve ever been to in person?: When my brother and cousin were both seniors for Masco playing against Ipswich. With five seconds left, my cousin (Craig) threw a hail mary to my brother (Eric) to beat the undefeated Ipswich team. I was a water boy at the game (which was in 2006).

What’s the best book you’ve read?: ‘The Blind Side’

Whats your dream car?: A Ford Mustang

If you could throw to one receiver or tight end from the NFL in a game, who would you choose?: Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions. All I would need to do is throw it up and he would do the rest.
