Mr. Football: Beau Hott

Q: What qualifications or talents do you have? What do you do?

A: I have an idea for my talent, but not really. I love hunting and fishing. I’m in choir, I sing Tenor 1, which is the highest men’s part. I’ve been singing since sophomore year.

Q: Do you have a favorite superhero? Who is your hero in real life?

A: The Hulk. He’s indestructible. Behind that anger there is a man that’s still rational, smart, and cares about people around him. Joe White is my hero in real life. He’s the owner of Kanakuk Kamps, which is a camp I go to every summer. It’s a Christian sports camp. I have a lot of fun going there, and there are people here at Plano that also go there. He is a superhero in his own sense. He thought he was going to die from cancer 15 years ago, and his testimony is just amazing. He’s a really good leader and he knows how to develop leaders. He’s a guy that turns boys into men, and him and his wife turn girls into women.

Q: Do you have a favorite breakfast food?

A: I don’t really do breakfast food, but whenever people go to Whataburger for breakfast, I always get a burger. I love getting burgers for breakfast.

Q: What is a place you most want to travel to?

A: Why would I want to leave Texas? It’s got everything. It’s got kind-of mountains out west, they call it mountains and basins, but it’s more like hills and rocks… It’s got the beach, desert, plains, forests, woods.

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

A: My first varsity football game, freshman year. I was confident, but I was just nervous out of my mind. I always have confidence to kind of mask it, but it was terrifying. I was a little freshman, and these guys were like 18. I’d never done it. The game was against Lakeview Centennial, and we won.

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

A: I would ask Jesus when He’s coming back.
