The Rice soccer player with the best non-soccer talent is: I'm pretty sure Amy Czyz knows every single word to every rap song that has come out within the last ten years.

One thing I'd like to say, but you didn't ask: Thank you to all my wonderful teammates for making my time at Rice so special :)
