Written by Tomo   
Friday, 23 May 2008
As a follow up to the recent Chad Powlovich interview, Japan correspondent, Tomohide Katigiri asked Mr. Hustle some additional questions. 
We hope you enjoy.  Thank you Tomo!
TK:  When did you started play ball?
CP:  When I was 2 years old.
TK:  You named BFP Mr Basketball and Gatorade Player of the year in high school time, which school interested to you??
CP:  Almost all the division three schools in New England, but coach Brennan called me in and had a meeting with me, and said there would be a spot for me on the team if I wanted but he just couldn’t give me any money.
TK:  Why you choose UVM?
CP:  I always wanted to play at UVM and once coach Brennan told me I would have a spot on the team I knew this was where I wanted to play in front of a home crowd.

TK:  You were grow up Sophmore season.  When end of the sophmore season was there school interest to you? You consider transfer?
CP:  No I didn’t consider it at all.  I love playing here at UVM and love my teammates and coaches so it didn’t even cross my mind. I really just wanted to win another championship and we got so close two times but could never get over the hump, which if I could go back and change one thing that would be it. 
TK:  You have strong body--How many times did you workout each week?
CP:  I tried to work out and lift four times a week--it is just something that I really enjoy doing and working at.
TK:  How many pounds your highest bench press?
CP:  [Laughs] 315 pounds.
TK:  Everyone know you are Barber!  Did you have whom haircut Blakely's mohawk?
CP:  I gave most of the guys on the team haircuts besides Jordan I think is the only one I haven’t cut, and I cut 3 of the coaches hair to.
TK:  Your defense and rebound were the reputations. You are a hard very worker.  From whom was it influenced? 
CP:  Both my parents are extremely hard workers, and thats who I have been influenced by ever since I was young.  I was taught to work as hard as you can at everything you do and that’s what I live by.
TK:  What is your highest memories in UVM?
CP:  It would have to be beating Syracuse in the NCAA tournament my freshman year.
TK:  Congrats graduate college!  What kind of job do you want to get?
CP:  I want to become a personal trainer or a strength and conditioning coach, but my ultimate goal would be to own my own gym and train people there.
TK:  Please teach your hobby excluding the haircut.
CP:  I really enjoy playing golf and working out.
TK:  You sometimes grow your beard.  Is someone imaged?Actor?Artist?
CP:  No I just like to switch my facial hair up often because it gets boring having the same thing all the time.
TK:  Could you tell me funny story?at the bus and rocker room...
CP:  Sorry that stuff stays within the team, whatever happens in locker room stays in the locker room [Laughs].
TK:  You received coaching by TB and coach L. What did you learn from them?
CP:  I learned from coach Brennan to work hard and he would always tell me that I was doing a great job in practice even though I didn’t really play in the games but that meant a lot.  He taught me to cherish everything you have an everyday.  He really said this my freshman year because we had such a great year with so many seniors and I try to live my life that way now.
From coach Lonergan I learned that the little things in basketball matter so much and that doing little drills over and over will make your whole game that much better. I also learned that hard work really does pay off because he gave me a chance to play just for doing the little things and he always really praised me for hustle plays and good defense. Both were great coaches and I will stay in touch with them for the rest of my life.
TK:  What influence did the coaches change have for you? Was it a big chance?
CP:  Well I didn’t really know what to expect from the new coach, but I knew I wasn’t going to leave UVM because of the coaching change. When Coach Lonergan came in he gave me a fair shot and really noticed the little things that I did, even though I wasn’t a great scorer and I will always thank him for that.
TK:  I heard you and Timmy very popular among the woman. Who is most popular?
[Laughs] I would have to say Timmy.
TK:  The floor is yours to offer some parting words for your fans, friends and family..
CP:  I would just like to say thank you to all the fans for coming to all of the games and supporting me through these 4 years, it has been a lot of fun I will miss everything. Thank you to my parents for attending all the games and thank you to my teammates and coaches for being like family to me and I have so many great friendships now from basketball.
TK: Arigatou gozaimasu Chad! [Translation:  Thank you very much Chad].
