Around the Horn with John Oteri, Andover lacrosse

(Continued)

When did you start playing lacrosse? “Second grade.”

What’s your favorite personal athletic achievement? “Definitely Thanksgiving junior season. It was pretty special to get the W against Central and to play in front of like 8,000 people. It was pretty surreal.”

Do you play any other sports? “In the winter I just fine-tune my skills for lacrosse season.”

Who is the best athlete you’ve ever played against? “My brother is a pretty good athlete. He’s a big dude (6-4, 200), strong and fast.”

Do you work? “It’s sports and school. I coach at Lazer Lax, Coach Pug’s (Andover coach Wayne Puglisi) camps, in the summer.”

Who is the most famous person you’ve met? “Denzel Washington. It was weird. He was in Boston walking down the street and I got his autograph.”

What’s something people don’t know about you? “I can juggle, I dabble.”

Who’s your dream date? “Rachel McAdams.”

Do you have a nickname? “Too many to list.”

Who do you follow on Twitter-Facebook? “A lot, Brandon Spikes, Skip Bayless, Johny Manziel.”

Do you have any pets? “A dog, a Boxer-Basset Hound mix, named Opal.”

What is the most embarrassing song you have in your iPod? “That’s confidential. OK, ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ by Mariah Carey.”

If you were named principal, what’s the first thing you’d do? “Oh, man! Get rid of the hall monitors and bring the school dances back to what they were.”
