Who the Buc are you?
The Round Table got the opportunity to sit down with Logan Eicheid’23 and find out Who the Buc he is!
The Round Table: Where are you from?
Logan Eischeid: “Walworth, Wisconsin. It’s a small town about half hour straight East of Beloit”
RT: What is your major?
Eischeid: “Media Studies, with a minor in Journalism.”
RT: What is your plan after college?
Escheid: “I think I would like to be writing for a local newspaper about their high school sports. Or I’m getting more into media stuff, maybe something with production of something. But I’m not entirely sure yet. ”
RT: How did you choose Beloit?
Eischeid: “The old head basketball contacted me. He said they were interested in me playing basketball here. So I took a visit, didn’t like it at first. But I took a few more and it felt right. I think the opportunities that Beloit offers was one of the main reasons. Another reason was the players. When I came on a visit, you know, you introduce yourself to the current players, and then I came again because I lived so close. I thought why not take another visit, the players recognized me and said, “Hey Logan, nice to see you again”, things like that. It made me feel like I was wanted here.”
RT: When did you start playing basketball and how did you get into it?
Eischeid: “I’m not sure how I got into it. I guess it was just always around growing up. I guess like my parents got me and my brother like those tykes hoops and it was something to do in the winter when you couldn’t go outside as much.”
RT: What is your favorite aspect of basketball?
Eischeid: “I love a perfect swish. You get that perfect arc, hold your follow through and see it go in and hear the snap of the net. I also appreciate a good assist. I would much rather thread the needle for an assist than to get that perfect swish myself. But I do like making that perfect swish.”
RT: How long have you competed?
Eischeid: “I remember my first year of basketball was in third grade. So that would be about 12-13 years.”
RT: How do you get hyped for a game?
Eischeid: “I don’t really. I guess I listen to music, but I wouldn’t say it gets me hyped, it just clears my mind. That puts me at ease and I’m ready to go compete. ”
RT: What’s your favorite memory with the team?
Eischeid: “We beat Ripon at their place freshman year. That was a huge will for us as a program and they were on the top teams in the league. But I enjoy the locker room time before and after practices and games alone with the bus trips. Just being able to spend time with your teammates to get to know them more is always fun.”
RT: Does the team have any traditions?
Eischeid: “We go to the 615 Club in Beloit.”
RT: What does a typical practice look like?
Eischeid: “Full court warm up stuff to get loose. Then we do some sort of shooting to get the feel of the ball. Then we do some live segments. Either full court of half, depending on when the next game is. We compete pretty hard in those, sometimes they even get a bit chippy and intense. Which is good, you want that, that means we are competing hard.”
RT: What are some of your goals in basketball and in life?
Eischeid: “For basketball, our goal is to compete in every game and make the conference tournament. Then once we get there, win it. Personally in basketball, I’d like to play quality minutes, do what I do best and give my team the best chance to be successful. In life, geez, have a family, I guess. I haven’t thought that far out I guess.”
RT: Do you have any superstitions?
Eischeid: “Not really. I put my left shoe on first then right, then tie my left shoe, then tie my right shoe. I think I noticed I did that and I had a good game, so I stuck with it. It is more of a comfort thing rather than superstition. In my opinion.”
RT: Do you have any pets? Names? Breed?
Eischeid: “One dog. Named Gabby. She is about nine years old and we were told she is a schnauzer yorkie mix. But she doesn’t really look like the google photos of that breed. So we’re a little unsure of what she is.”
RT: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Eischeid: “I would like the ability to read minds. Because sometimes when people talk or make decisions, I always wonder, “what were you thinking?” And with that power I wouldn’t have to wonder.”
RT: If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Eischeid: “One of the Northern European countries, Sweden, Norway or Finland. All of their pictures, the scenery looks so pretty.”
RT: Stance on pineapple on pizza? Why or why not?
Eischeid: “Yes, duh. If you don’t like it, take it off. I mean you’ll have anchovies or some other random stuff, but not pineapple? C’mon now, it is allowed on pizza.”
