Certain athletes prefer rap or hip- hop music.

 “I love listening to hip-hop music before games because it gets me hype,” sophomore Alexander Lewis said, “‘Like Me’ by Lil Uzi is my favorite song to listen to.”

Other athletes claim that softer music puts them in the mood for a game.

“Sad music gets me ready to play,” senior Jacob Joseph said, “’Budapest’ by George Ezra is my favorite song to listen to before games.”

Some players enjoy listening to various types of songs and genres to switch it up for every game.

“I sometimes listen to music before games to get me pumped,” senior John Tisch said, “I listen to different types of music.”

“I listen to music so I won’t have any outside distractions,” senior Jonathan Powrozek said.
