Shelby Kuni interviews her teammate. Bernard has three goals and four assists in eight games this year.
SK: How did you get your start in soccer and who inspired you to play to the level you are at today?
RB: My mom wanted me to play so she signed me up when I was four, and I’ve played ever since. My family has inspired me by supporting and encouraging me since the beginning, but I know I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my past coaches who really believed in me.
SK: Any other hobbies besides soccer?
RB: Playing Wii, rubbing Courtney’s back, holding your hand, stuff like that.
SK: Most memorable victory as a Spartan?
RB: The 7-2 win over Barry my sophomore year. We had never beaten them before that.
SK: If you were on the reality T.V. show Survivor, what three other people from the team would you want to compete against?
RB: Brittney, because she’s hurt and can’t run, Brianna, because I am bigger than her, and Lauren, because I would just trip her if she was winning.
SK: Any pre game rituals?
RB: Handshakes with Shannon (Agnew), Shannon (Aitken), Courtney and you on the field before kickoff.

SK: What about your favorite “closet” artist?

SK: If you could chose anyone on the team to do your homework, who would it be?
RB: Murf (Nicole Murphy).
SK: Something your parents told you as a child that you completely believed?
RB: I believed in Santa Clause until second grade. I was in the bathroom at school and one of my brothers friends came up to me and told me he wasn’t real.
SK: When you’re not playing soccer, you’re ______.
RB: Playing Wii with you.
