GIVE & GO NICOLE LEVY What is your favorite hobby?


When I’m not playing lacrosse, I am most likely in the water. Water sports are a big passion of mine, including wake boarding and surfi ng.


If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? A running front fl ip. I tried so many times this fall to perfect it and I came close, but couldn’t quite land it.


What are your pregame rituals? I carry a light switch in my lacrosse bag so that come game time I fi guratively and literally “fl ip the switch.” This is used as both a superstition and a mental focus tactic for me.


What’s been the proudest moment of your career? That’s easy! Stepping out onto the fi eld in the Carrier Dome for our fi rst game last year is by far my proudest moment, ever. I remember feeling the sense of history crash on me like a wave. Many of “the greats” have played on that same fi eld, including my coaches. Therefore, I felt the importance of carrying on what we like to call Syracuse tradition.


What’s the biggest obstacle you’ve overcome? Losing my grandfather. He passed away last fall and he meant the world to me. He taught me how to drive a boat and play golf, which are two of my favorite things to do, especially when it was with him. I am extremely grateful I had my family to help me through it along with my ‘Cuse family as well.


OVERTIME FROM DUKE COACH KERSTIN KIMEL What’s your go-to pre-game meal?


A plain bagel with cream cheese. I’m pretty simple when it comes to breakfast foods and most of our games are in the mornings.


DOUBLE OVERTIME FROM @BRYNNHOLOHAN What “Friends” character do you most identify yourself with?


I have a combination of Chandler’s humor and Monica’s competitiveness.


Pose a question for our next subject. What’s your biggest fear?

Syracuse’s sidearm slinger flips the switch INTERVIEW BY MEGAN SCHNEIDER


Who’s your favorite athlete? JJ Watt from the Texans. I love the energy [he] brings to


every game. I am [also] a huge fan of Wayne Gretzky. What’s your favorite sports movie?


“The Mighty Ducks.” It is a classic. I was inspired by the knuckle puck and the idea of a signature shot.
