This week's Lee-Scott Athlete of the Week is Haynes Waid, a senior point guard on the Warriors' basketball team.
The Auburn Villager: When did you get your start playing basketball?
Haynes Waid: I just started playing when I picked up a basketball when I was about 3 years old playing with my dad in the backyard.
AV: When did you start playing competitively?
HW: When I was in first grade I started playing rec basketball.
AV: What do you enjoy about basketball over other sports?
HW: I love it more. It's something different. I kind of appeal to it more than anything else.
AV: What do you like about playing point guard?
HW: I like distributing the ball. I like getting other people involved and making everyone else better.
AV: Do you have any players you watch or emulate?
HW: Steve Nash. Steve Nash was one of my favorites growing up.
AV: What did you like about his game?
HW: He does the same things. He distributes and makes everyone better.
AV: How is the season going so far and what are you all looking forward to?
HW: It's been pretty good. We're the No. 1 seed going into the state tournament. We've lost more games than we've wanted, but I think they were all needed and we've learned from them.
AV: Do you have any other hobbies outside of sports?
HW: I'm on a fishing team at Lee-Scott. We fish tournaments over the weekends for our school.
AV: What's the biggest fish you've caught so far this season?
HW: I caught a 7-pounder earlier this January, a 7-pound large mouth bass.
AV: Is there a certain weight fish you're going for?
HW: Yeah. I want to break double digits this year. I want to break a 10-pounder.
AV: Have you caught one that big before?
HW: I have not. I've been really close; I've caught a 9, but I have not caught a 10.
AV: As a senior, do you know what you want to do after you graduate?
HW: Yes, sir. I'm going to Auburn. I'm going to major in Fisheries.
