Meet the Freshmen: Aaron Ware

So I'm doing a reprise of last year's Meet the Freshmen series, where I ask each incoming freshman the same questions.

Last year's was pretty good, and gave us tidbits like Xavier Alexander eating Flintstones vitamins for breakfast, Joseph Katuka being a big fan of National Treasure, and Miles Beatty's biggest influences being Tupac and Michael Jordan.

This year's first interview is Aaron Ware. Enjoy!
