Q: As a three-sport athlete coming out of high school, what was your favorite sport?
Brooksby: My first love was baseball growing up. I didn't start playing football until high school. During my junior year, football became a reality of something that I could do in the future, so that's where my focus went.

Q: What hobbies do you have outside of athletics?
Brooksby: Fishing, camping and doing things outdoors. I have a 5-week old son, and that is one of my new hobbies is spending time with him and my fiancé.

Q: What is your favorite pre-game meal?
Brooksby: Steak and mashed potatoes. The classic and it fills me up. I'll have steak anytime of the day.

Q: What is your favorite food to cook?
Brooksby: I love to cook and I enjoy cooking salmon. My fiancé and I watch Master Chef all the time and I'm learning new recipes all the time and trying to better myself in that area.

Q: What is your ideal fishing trip?
Brooksby: I've done salmon finishing in Alaska, I love the salmon run. I've been halibut fishing. I love river fishing and fly fishing. I've pretty much done all that can be done.

Q: Do you prefer fly fishing or bait fishing?
Brooksby: I'm a bait guy. Fly fishing is all about technique and gets tiring if you are not catching anything. I'll go bait and lures and do the whole nine yards for hours.

Q: What is your favorite fishing spot in Arizona?
Brooksby: There is a little spot just outside of Flagstaff, called Mormon Lake. It's got some good trout finishing there.

Q: What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
Brooksby: Fruity Pebbles.

Q: What is your favorite movie?
Brooksby: All of the Star Wars films.

Q: Who is your favorite athlete of all time?
Brooksby: Randy Johnson.

Q: Would you rather have the winning strikeout, pancake block leading to a winning touchdown, the game-winning dunk or game-winning block?
Brooksby: I would choose the block leading to the touchdown. That is something I've never had the chance to do. Everything else has already been done, maybe not the dunk, but I've always been a bit heavier. The block leading to the touchdown would be something.

Q: If you could play any other position on the field, where would you play?
Brooksby: I would love to play tight end or quarterback. Just the knowledge that quarterbacks have to have to read everything, that would be really cool.
