Colin Fisher of Eagan.

Here is a closer look at Eagan football player Colin Fisher, who also wrestles and competes in track and field (shot put, discus) for the Wildcats:

The best movie I've seen in the last year? "21 Jump Street."

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Loud, big, aggressive.

Three songs I never skip on my iPod are ... "Till I Collapse" by Eminem; "We Ready" by Archie; "Game Time" by Trox and K2.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... nervous and a little anxious and I was freaking out because I didn't want to screw up.

What is your favorite meal before a game? It's all about the pasta and lasagna.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? Not as well as I probably should, but I use study hall and last-minute studying to my advantage.

If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? Less fundraising! Kids should not have to sell coupons or cookie dough in order to play a sport. More money should be given to schools to help support athletics.

Who is your favorite college or pro sports team and why? Texas. I've always wanted to experience Texas football.

Do you have a secret talent -- and if so, what is it? I can make a plate of food disappear.

What is the best sports advice you ever received? "When it comes to having goals in sports, there's two options: finding a way or finding an excuse. Champions will always find a way to reach their goals."
