3 QUESTIONS FOR LOBE
Biggest soccer influences and why?
"Phillip Lahm has been one of my biggest soccer influences. As a fullback for Bayern Munich, he was adept at turning defense into attack, and he was able to control the tempo of the game even from his position."
Do you have an idol or hero?
"One of the people I greatly admire is the poet Langston Hughes. I admire Hughes for the awareness he brought to Black culture and art at a time when the Civil Rights movement was taking off. I also admire his poetry – not only his poems that highlight many of the race issues apparent during his time, such as `Theme For English B,' but also his other beautiful and simple pieces like `Dreams.'"
"Yale offers me a place that overflows with history, tradition and highly motivated students. I love the small-school feel – the communities within communities. More than anything, though, Yale offers me an opportunity to find a great balance between the sport I love and the growth and pursuit of my interests in philosophy, literature and history."
Coach Stannard On Lobe: "Justin is a fierce but quiet competitor. He will arguably come in as the top athlete on our team and has recently been running track and getting some very good times. He and Max Graham are coming from the same top club, Bethesda-Olney, and also the same high school. They also both happen to be left-footed players, which is a need. Justin is an absolute lock down 1v1 defender and takes pride in this. He also has a fantastic long-throw which can be used as another asset and weapon at certain points of the game. He is capable of playing out of the back and getting forward down the left wing and getting crosses or shots. He will compete as a left back or left midfielder."
