Auburn Villager: What position do you play?
Hannah Biglow: I play goalkeeper.
AV: When did you get your start playing soccer?
HB: I started playing soccer when I was around 4 years old.
AV: What drew you to it?
HB: Well, I've tried a whole bunch of different sports, but I just stuck with soccer.
AV: What is it about soccer do you like?
HB: I don't know. I just like the whole team aspect. I just felt comfortable playing soccer.
AV: Have you always played goalie?
HB: No. I actually started playing forward when I was little, but then I moved to defense. And then when one of our goalie got hurt, I filled in.
AV: When did you make that shift over to goalie?
HB: It was probably eighth grade.
AV: What are the biggest challenges about playing that position?
HB: Most of it seeing the field and trying to read the ball and then communication with your teammates to help you find the better aspect of the field.
AV: Did you have any role models in soccer growing up?
HB: I've watched women's soccer a lot, so Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan and Hope Solo.
AV: What did you learn from watching Solo?
HB: Her movement and her communication, so she would always talk to her defenders and communicate, tell them where to go.
AV: How is the season going for you so far?
HB: I'm loving it. It's going pretty good. We've got the third round of state on Friday.
AV: Does it feel good making it to state?
HB: It does. Last year, we lost in the first round, so it was pretty tough. We're hoping to go all the way this year.
AV: What other sports did you play?
HB: I've done basketball for a while, and then I did track and field, javelin.
AV: As a senior, do you know what you want to do yet after you graduate?
HB: I'm going to Auburn University, and I'm going to plan to major in kinesiology.
AV: What draws you to kinesiology?
HB: I've just always loved sports, and I figured that's still the best way to be involved and learn about the behind the scenes of sports.
AV: Are you excited about graduation?
HB: Yes. It's like five days away before we get out.
AV: Does it feel like it's really here?
HB: Not really. It's kind of surreal that I''m to the point that I'm graduating.
AV: Do you have any hobbies outside of sports that you like?
HB: I just like hanging out with friends, being with family.
