I recently conducted an interview with Chickasha Senior, Jake Womack. Womack will be heading to Connor State College in the fall, where he will begin a new chapter of his life.

Question 1:

Q: Growing up who did you admire the most? Why?

A: “Growing up, I admired my father the most. He worked for what we had. He also made sure that he never missed anything of mine not one practice or game that I can really think of. He pushed me to be the best I could be. I knew it was going to get me where I am.”

Question 2:

Q: What is your favorite baseball memory?

A: “I have had a lot of great memories in my four years. One of the things that sticks out in my mind is going 4-5 against Skiatook with a home run and 4 rbis in the win during the quarter finals.”

Question 3:

Q: How do you want your teammates to remember you?

A: “I want my teammates to remember me as not only a good player, but a good teammate, someone who works hard and is someone to look up to for the younger guys.”

Question 4:

Q: What is your normal routine before a baseball game?

A: “I hit three rounds in the cages. With the last one being about 5 balls hit solid. Then get dressed in the same order every day. Then walk out side do bands for my arm. Then get ready to go and get loose.”

Question 5:

Q: What is the best advice you were ever given? And  by who?

A: “Rushing isn’t fast. Smooth is fast.” – Greg Newman

Question 6:

Q: What is one more thing you hope to accomplish while here at Chickasha?

A: “I want to win a ring. Just like every other kid. Every year we start the year with one goal. No matter what anyone says. You have one goal and that’s to win a state championship.”

Question 7:

Q: What part of baseball comes the easiest to you?

A: “Hitting comes the easiest to me out of all aspects of the game. Although I still fail more than I succeed”

Question 8:

Q: What part of baseball comes the hardest?

A: “All aspects of catching. Receiving a ball, blocking a ball, calling a game, talking the most and the loudest trying to keep fielders or pitchers from making a decision since I have a better view.”
