Mr. FCA: Brooks Panhans

Q: What do you think about the competition itself?

A: To be honest, I think the 12 contestants are a bunch of good guys. They’re people that I feel like really represent the school well. I know most of them, so they’re all high character guys. Mr. Baseball, Mr. STUCO, Mr. Debate, and Mr. Football are some of my best friends.

Q: Do you listen to any specific bands or artists, as far as music goes?

A: My favorite artist is Eminem, but being from the south I’m also a huge country fan. Eric Church and Tim McGraw are probably my two favorites.

Q: Do you like pizza? What is your idea of the perfect pizza?

A: Love it. I’m a traditional kinda guy. I don’t gotta have all the different toppings, I’m just fine with the classic pepperoni pizza. Can’t go wrong with that, especially a from Mama’s. Gotta give Mama a shoutout there.

Q: If you had to be stuck in a TV show for a week, which show would you want to be stuck in?

A: Easy. Boy Meets World. It’s about a young man named Cory Matthews growing up in suburban life. It’s a sitcom, so it gets funny, it gets real, it’s all about relationships, school, and it’s pretty relatable.

Q: What was the most terrifying moment of your life?

A: A couple months ago I broke my leg. Just sitting there on the side of the field with a broken leg, I couldn’t do anything. It just seemed like everything was falling apart. It was really tough. I had to ride around school on a scooter for four weeks, I couldn’t walk or anything. It was pretty terrifying, you don’t know if you’re going to be okay, and not being able to walk… it’s weird. I learned a lot from it, and we persevered through it.

Q: Do you have a favorite cheesy pickup line?

A: If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together.

Q: If you could choose one person from history and have them answer any question truthfully, who would you pick and what would you ask?

A: I’m a big APUSH guy. I’d have to say my favorite historical figure of all time because he was a genius and he really knew how to work with money, was Alexander Hamilton. He should’ve been president, but he got shot by Aaron Burr. I would ask him how you run a country. He seems like the ultimate problem solver. He was pretty much the financial founder of the country, so I feel like he’d be able to solve pretty much any question.
