The 2009 Gentlemen of ASU: Andrew Johnston
Hometown: Tempe, AZ
What is your passion, life goal or dream job?
My passion is futbol. I love to play it, coach it, watch it, teach it, and expand it. If I could spend 24 hours a day around soccer, I would! IMPACT is how I would define my life goal. I want to impact the people I work with, meet, and live with in a positive way. My dream job is to be a general manager of a futbol team in England and leading them to the Champions League title. I’ll settle for Scott Van Pelts’ seat on SportsCenter… after I win Champions League.
Name and describe a particular man who was a role model and an influence for you in developing character and becoming a gentleman.
My pops. He treats my mom with respect and supports her in whatever she does, even if that means quitting her job to return to school randomly one day!
What kind of reaction do you get from people when you do gentlemanly things?
Girls will usually do a cute little look-up “thanks!” and then look down as if slightly embarrassed.
If you are a gentleman, what would you consider a lady to be?
A lady is thoughtful. She understands times and places. A lady has independent goals and ambitions and pursues them passionately.
