Hornet: Did you ever play any other sports?
Kessen: I played baseball, yeah that’s it
Hornet: What are you passionate about outside of football?
Kessen: School, just because if I’m playing football and don’t do well in school than I’m wasting my time. It kind of just goes hand in hand
Hornet: What is your fondest football memory?
Kessen: I don’t know, I have a lot. Playing at Angel Stadium for three years and this year we went to Butte for the state game. We lost, but that was still a good memory.
Hornet: If you could sit down and have dinner with any three people who would they be and why?
Kessen: I don’t know, probably my Grandma, who is my Dad’s Mom because I’ve never met her.
Hornet: What’s your favorite thing about Fullerton College?
I dont like it, just kidding. It’s a good opportunity for people to do other stuff Its good for people who cant afford to go to college or who don’t know what to do after high school. It’s a good place for them to figure stuff out.
