Meet Your Freshmen 2008: Ricky Doriott

Yeah so... I took two days off instead of one. Oh well! I'll get back with the program now, then I should study for my FE exam.

Ah, Ricky, Ricky, Ricky. Tech fans, here's a guy to watch this season. Michigan Tech is going to transform him into quite the athlete. When asked about Ricky, Coach Russell said, "the conditioning of the athletes at this level was quite a shock for Ricky." Hmm. Well, here goes the usual:

Position: Defense
Last Team: N. Iowa (NAHL)/S. City (USHL)
Hometown: Blaine, MN
Birthday: 10/2/87
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 225 lbs

Tech Hockey Blog (THB): So Ricky, what is your secret to being so tall? Do you have advice for people, such as myself, who strive to one day be 5’4” and beyond?
Ricky Doriott (RD): Um, I don’t know what my secret is. It’s probably because I have tall parents. They are both above 6 feet. And some advice is to get on a stretcher. [I'll keep that in mind....]

THB: Are you a fighter, not a lover, on the ice?
RD: Um I am both. I love to smile all the time because it really upsets the other team. And then I like to get mad and I would love to fight… but I don’t know if Coach would be too happy unless we are playing Northern. [Well I think we know what to expect this year against NMU. If you really want to make them mad, skate within about 2' feet of that pansy Brian Stewart. He'll flop all over the ice as if he got hit by a train, then all hell will break lose. Be ready to rock!]

THB: What do you think of Houghton and Michigan Tech so far?
RD: It’s a lot different from what I’m use to but I like it a lot so far.

THB: What is your personal goal on the ice this season?
RD: I would like to play a lot and whoop the Gophers. [We all want that too.]

THB: How do you think the WCHA will compare to the NAHL?
RD: It will be a lot faster and a lot better competition and it will be intense. [Sounds about right... as you're starting to see already.]

THB: What size skate do you wear?
RD: 9 and ¾.

THB: Do you look both ways before crossing the road?
RD: Never. I just kind of walk on out and hope I don’t get hit. [That's one way to do it...]

THB: Are the Fighting Sioux really hostile and abusive?
RD: I don’t know yet… [Let me assure you that they are.]

THB: What can you tell me about Mitch’s Misfits?
RD: They sound really supportive and like a good group of people who can help us get into other teams’ heads. [You should teach Bryce all about this group. Seems like you have a good handle on your knowledge of them.]

THB: If Coach Russell and Chuck Norris got into a boxing match, in how many rounds would Coach Russell win?
RD: 1st round TKO. [No arguments there.]

THB: What’s your favorite class so far at Michigan Tech?
RD: Probably my social studies class because I love history.

THB: Can you juggle?
RD: No way.

THB: Do you take requests for people to beat up on the opposing teams?
RD: Yeah, I guess I could do that. [I will DEFINITELY be keeping you in mind this season.]

THB: How do you feel when you stand next to Jordan Baker?
RD: Very tall but he’s really tough so it evens out. [That's for sure. No offense, Ricky, but I bet Jordan could take you...]

THB: Tell me exactly how you feel about Northern Michigan University.
RD: I hate them already. [Excellent answer.]

THB: Do you sing in the shower?
RD: Not usually. [Lies!]

THB: Do you find Sarah Palin to be attractive?
RD: Don’t know her. [Umm... click here and get back to me on that.]

THB: Which road trip are you most excited about this upcoming season?
RD: Definitely Minnesota. [I'm looking forward to that one myself. It's the least amount of travel for me all season and I'll be hosting a swarm of Misfits.]

THB: How does the energy level and noise of a crowd affect your play on the ice?
RD: A lot. It helps you get pumped up and get mean. [Well I hope the Tech fans contribute a lot to your pumped-upness and meanness this season. They should.]

THB: Is there anything you’d like to tell all of the Michigan Tech fans out there?
RD: Be loud and get in the other teams’ heads.

Thanks, Ricky, for answering the questions for all of us!

He'll learn about crossing the street as soon as he's nearly hit by a logging truck at full steam.

Then again, with those stats, it looks like the logging trucks should be more afraid of him. :)

Ricky Doriott, what do you know about getting in the teams head? you let the fans live in your head. Tell your new team mates how your big till someone comes after you. I dont think you have ever won a fight. I wish crowder would have got you when he had the chance. Good call on bringing your dad to springfield your last time through you needed protection. how far are you going to let your +/- fall this year. your a BITCH!!!!

I seem to recall Ricky getting bitch slapped by Crowder and he still didn't want to fight.And what happened when Crowder had enough of Rickys mouth,Ricky got the beating his daddy never gave him.I seem to recall the blood all over the back of Rickys jersey from Crowder pulling it over his head then beating him like a red headed step child.I will give Ricky the one prop he deserves,if you are looking for someone to chirp the other team into penalties then Ricky is your man,just don't EVER expect him to back up his mouth.
