The Rice soccer team officially opens the season on the road at Texas Tech on Friday, Aug. 19.
The Owls have had some rugged preseason practices so far, but those workouts are no comparison to the hard-hitting "Just For Kicks" hotseat! Rookie keeper Amy Czyz is the latest Owl to accept the season-long Q & A challenge.

My favorite meal at the Rice servery: the grilled cheese is BOMB
My favorite class at Rice: I currently haven't taken any, sooo unknown

I chose my Rice jersey number because: I had it in high school, but I'm not entirely sure "00" is an actual number
The person who got me interested in soccer: I would love to know as well
The best soccer advice I ever had: "Be better tomorrow than you were today."
My favorite sport besides soccer: football
The Rice team I'd like to watch play their sport: volleyball, even though some of the girls scare me because they're significantly taller than I will ever be.
The most embarrassing moment or thing that ever happened to me: For my own safety I'm going to kindly skip this question...
I describe myself as: I'd like to say normal but I don't know if that's entirely true
My teammates think I am: I have absolutely no idea so far
My favorite expression Coach Nicky uses: "I LOVE SOCCER!!!!"
Other than myself, the Rice Owl to keep an eye on this season: Ben...he pours a mean cup of Gatorade
The Rice soccer player with the best non-soccer talent: Hayley can almost fit all 6 feet of herself in one of our lockers. True skill
