5 things About Me: Drew Piazza
- I once broke my pinky catching a Nerf football – the finger is still slightly deformed.
- I transferred from the University of New Hampshire to Virginia Tech after my junior year.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
