The sixth 2014 Titan signee to join FullertonTitans.com for the Q&A is Kaycee Hoover of Troy High School in Fullerton.

FullertonTitans.com: Why did you decide to attend Cal State Fullerton and play for the Titans?
Kaycee: I decided to attend Cal State Fullerton and play for the Titans because I've lived in this area my entire life. I've watched the Titans play since I was little, and I was even a ball girl at some of the games. Once I made the decision to play at the collegiate level, although I considered other schools, I just knew Cal State Fullerton would be a perfect fit for me. Attending CSF will keep me close to home, and playing for the community I grew up in means a lot to me.
FullertonTitans.com: Graduation from Troy High School is just a few months away. What are your thoughts on attending college across the street from your high school?
Kaycee: My thoughts on attending college right across the street from my high school are such that even though I know Cal State Fullerton is close by, it will be completely different from high school. I will get the chance to experience a totally different environment of people and education.
FullertonTitans.com: Cal State Fullerton head coach Demian Brown has described you as a player that can play both forward and in the midfield. What would you describe your style of play as?
Kaycee: I would describe my style of play as a player who enjoys scoring goals from the striker position, but with my success in the center midfield, I am always looking to connect with forwards and outside mids to create plays and get behind the opponent's defense. I play with a high concern of keeping possession of the ball and my favorite thing about the game is when a team can maneuver the ball flawlessly through the center of an opposing team.
FullertonTitans.com: Your sister, Shea, plays soccer at Long Beach State. What are your thoughts on playing against her next season?
Kaycee: I've played next to my sister since we were little girls, so to finally play against her is something I'm really looking forward to. There's always been a sibling rivalry between us, so it will definitely be an intense game and I will not hesitate to say that the Titans will come out on top!
FullertonTitans.com: What should Cal State Fullerton fans know about you?
Kaycee: Cal State Fullerton fans should know that I love to put on a good show that comes from hard work, high standards and great soccer every game.
FullertonTitans.com: Your favorite travel destination and why?
Kaycee: I don't have a favorite travel destination because I don't travel much outside of soccer travel. If I had to pick a favorite place that I have visited with my club team, it would be Colorado. I love the outdoors, nature and all of the beautiful green scenery in Colorado.
FullertonTitans.com: If you could meet any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Kaycee: If I could meet any three people dead or alive, the first would be President John F. Kennedy because he was such a popular President and I am fascinated by all the conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination. Second, would be Steven Morrissey, the lead singer of my favorite band, The Smiths. I think he is a great musician. Lastly, I would love to meet Lionel Messi because I believe he is the greatest soccer player in the world.
FullertonTitans.com: What are your hobbies/activities away from the field?
Kaycee: My hobbies/activities away from the soccer field are reading, watching movies, hanging out at the beach and long boarding.
