The 2009 Gentlemen of ASU: Samuel Pagel
Hometown: Lincoln, Nebraska
What is your passion, life goal or dream job?
My passion is for Christ, I do everything for Him; My life goal is to be a sports broadcaster in a large market. I love sports. Being a broadcaster for ESPN would be my dream job.
Name and describe a particular man who was a role model and an influence for you in developing character and becoming a gentleman.
My father has been a role model for me my whole life. He never ceases to be a great husband, father and provider. I am so thankful for him always being there and raising me the way he has.
What kind of reaction do you get from people when you do gentlemanly things?
Usually I will get a simple ‘thank you,’ most of the time I get a positive reaction. Occasionally someone will say, “Oh, what a gentleman!”
If you are a gentleman, what would you consider a lady to be?
A lady is a woman who is mature and secure with who she is and what she looks like. A true lady does not find security in makeup or showing off her body. A true lady respects men by the way she dresses: modestly. Of course, being a true lady goes far beyond what shows on the outside. She is a hard worker and strives to do her best in all she does. She is polite, classy, gracious and puts others before herself.
