Three questions with Brant Baker

Brant Baker

Heights linebacker

Baker, a senior, is part of a Heights team (1-3, 1-2 CL) facing North (1-3, 1-2) at 7 tonight at Carpenter Stadium.

What do you listen to before the game?

"The team usually listens to either rap or rock music. I don't pay much attention to what's playing, though. I'm usually sitting somewhere by myself trying to think about the game."

Is it harder to prepare for a Thursday night game compared to a Friday game?

"Yes, because you have less time. You have to work even harder during the week to get ready."

How important is it for the team to build some momentum heading into district games?

"We've been working hard, but we have to work even harder. You want to play well heading into districts and hopefully we can get things going with this game."
