I enjoy the bond and the camaraderie that I have created with my teammates. I enjoy playing the game I love with my team here.  

2.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

I bring a positive and upbeat type of energy to the football field because I know football is a privilege and I enjoy every second of it. After a long day of classes practice is the highlight of my day.  

3.What are you looking forward to in the rest of your season?

I am looking for consistency and continuous improvement in our team and individually. 

4.What sets you apart from other quarterbacks?

I have the ability to extend plays and make plays out of nothing without making a bad play worse. I understand when to throw the ball away and when it is time to make a play. 

5.What should we know about Marco Aguinaga the person?

You should know that I am going to bring my game every time I step out on that field. I love to compete I think it brings the best out of me and I fight through adversity too no matter the circumstances.

6.What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite moments are winning big games as a team because I know everyone played their hearts out to get that big win. I also just love those moments of the process such as workout out, watching film, meetings and practice. 

7.What is your favorite pass and why?

My favorite pass is a slant. It is both a man and a zone beater.

8.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

I would hang out with Russell Wilson because I feel like I play the game similar to the way he does. We’re both under 6’0″ so I feel like I could benefit a lot by listening to some knowledge he would have for me.

9.What do you love about the game of football?

I love that it takes all 11 guys to be successful for one play. I love the grind and I love the process of it.

10.What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a leader and a teammate. I will make the guys around me better and I will bring that competitive edge out of everyone.

11.How do you prepare for games?

I watch the most film I can and practice on certain looks the defense might show us. Coverages and fronts. I also make sure I’m hydrated and make sure that I am 100% on everything I need to know in the game plan. 

12.How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I would say it depends on the challenges but for the most part I use football as a way to block out all of the negativity and distractions that are going on in life. Football is my coping mechanism.
