Opening Day at IPC is just a few short days away! To get excited about the first match of the season, we caught up with players from both teams to hear their thoughts about the upcoming season and some fun facts about them. Tune in for the next 3 days to learn about members of Team Coca Cola and Team Tackeria.
Name: Steve Krueger
Team name: Coca Cola
1. How does it feel to have the opportunity to play in the first game on the new fields at IPC?
I am very excited to be playing on the new fields. I have heard many good things about the work done over the summer and I can’t wait to get out there.
2. What are your plans/goals for the 2018 season?
My plans are to win as many Polo games as possible! I am very grateful for the opportunity that the Johnston family and the Coke organization has presented, and I’m looking forward to getting started.
3. Who is your strongest horse? What chukker are you planning to play them in?
I am very pleased with my string thus far preparing for the season. I have some younger talent that I’m excited to play but some of the older ones are the ones that I have the most confidence on, Retama and Vulcan in particular. I usually play Vulcan in the first chukker and Retama towards the end of the game.
4. Do you have a special pre-game ritual? Or a favorite pump up song?
I don’t really listen to music much before games, but I do like to get a good warm up in and a fast stick and ball session.
5. What is your favorite inspirational quote?
“Do or do not, there is no try” -Yoda
