Jake Marver is the third-leading scorer and rebounder on the Sheboygan South basketball team, and the senior forward plans on probably attending UW-Oshkosh or St. Cloud State for some type of sports management education.
Marver, the latest to participate in “20 questions,” would love to run the Bucks someday, especially since his favorite athlete is on the team.
Maybe he would even try to trick an opposing player, similar to what happened to him last season.
Q: If you could be or do anything for a living, what would it be?
A: I’d want to be the GM of the Milwaukee Bucks probably.
Q: Favorite and least-favorite athlete?
A: Favorite is Giannis Antetokounmpo and least favorite would be James Harden because he gets all the attention from the media.
Q: What was the most embarrassing moment for you in any sport?
A: I don’t know if anyone saw it, but last year at the North-South game (on a sideline inbounds play), one of my friends on the other team, Chase Renzelmann, goes “your shoes untied.” I look down and it was tied. It was embarrassing.
Q: What is a hidden talent you have?
A: I’m not really sure if I have any hidden talents. Most people know what I can or can’t do.
Q: What scares you the most?
A: Probably thinking about dying at some point in my life.
Q: What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you at one of your jobs?
