Sidelines with Parker Siegfried

You might know Parker Siegfried as the Ohio State men’s soccer goalie, part of the 2016 Big Ten All-Freshman team and a two-time Academic All-Big Ten member, but you might not know about his favorite ice cream flavors or things to do in the summer. With that in mind, we asked him.

Are you keeping an eye on the World Cup? Which team has been your favorite to watch?

Yeah, I’ve been loving watching England play and hope they can win it all. #itscominghome

What’s the best place to eat around campus?

Ethyl & Tank 

What’s the coolest part about being a Buckeye? What is the coolest thing you think you’ve done since coming to Ohio State?

The coolest part about being a Buckeye is being able to go anywhere in the world and meet people who have connections to Ohio State. The coolest thing that I’ve done on the field since coming to Ohio State is beating Michigan in double overtime in 2016. The coolest thing that I’ve done off of the field really is being lucky enough to make the friendships that I’ve made with teammates, classmates, and other Ohio State students throughout my time here. 


Do you have any weird hobbies or interestes? Are you secretly a lover of slacklining? Or a huge fan of Yu-Gi-Oh?

Slacklining actually is really cool and I’ll sometimes ask to try when I walk by someone doing it in The Oval but as of lately I’ve been a big Fortnite player. I may not win very often but we could always use an extra in squads to replace Jacob Duska or Jack Holland so I would love to play with any other students out there (Xbox: ParkTheBrave).

What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time over the summer?

Golf and spend time on a lake. Any lake, anywhere, with anyone, but on a lake.

Amusement parks or water parks and why?

Water parks. There’s more water there.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

You can’t go wrong with vanilla.

What’s a cooler way to score a goal: bicycle kick in the box or a rocket from midfield that gets past the goalie?

Definitely a bicycle kick.
