5 things About Me: Drew Piazza

  1. I once broke my pinky catching a Nerf football – the finger is still slightly deformed.
  2. I transferred from the University of New Hampshire to Virginia Tech after my junior year.
  3. I was the slowest and most out of shape person on my soccer team freshman year – was told I was “slow as s**t” by my coach.
  4. My nickname in 8th grade and all throughout highschool was “Butters” – the South Park character. No good reason for it, a kid decided to call me that one day and for some reason it stuck with everyone.
  5. I threw a no hitter during 3 innings pitching at my 5th grade All-Star Baseball game and it’s honestly one of my proudest sports moments to this day.
