Following his performance, Hall was nominated for the Michigan Journal’s second UM-Dearborn Player of the Week vote. With 58 percent of the vote, Hall won, and was recognized with the honor on Sept. 23.

Guest Reporter Mitchell Stapleton spoke with Hall for a Q-and-A session.

Q: What high school did you go to?
A: I Went to Corunna High School.

Q: What position do you play?
A: I play center midfield for the most part.

Q: Have you played any other sports besides soccer?
A: When I was a lot younger in middle school, I played basketball, but other than that, no.

Q: What do you like most about soccer?
A: I love the intensity that comes with a close game. When it comes down to the last few minutes and you’re down a goal or up a goal, it’s either press like crazy for a goal or defend for your life. Both watching and playing soccer this would be my favorite thing.
