Name: Ronnie Modik
Hometown: Levittown, NY
How long have you been playing for the C.W. Post football team?
I have been playing football here at C.W. Post for three years.
What made you choose to come to Post?
I chose to come to Post after I transferred from Pace University after one year because I wanted to be close to home and wanted to play for a winning tradition.
How do you feel about Post now?
I feel Post is the place that I was always meant to be, not only because of the football program but also because of the people who go to school here.
How is campus life here at Post?
Campus life is great here. All [of] the people I interact with every day make the day better, and I could not ask for more.
What lesson(s) will you take from Post?
The biggest lesson I learned from Post is that the obstacles you face during your college years will only make you a better person.
What is the best memory you have with the team?
The best memory I have with the team is the point that we are at now. We are 4-0 right now and looking to win a conference championship and more. The feeling of winning with a team of guys you love outweighs everything.
What do you want to do after you graduate from Post?
When I graduate from Post, I want to eventually teach physical education and coach football at the high school level or, hopefully, even at a college level.
What will you miss the most from Post?
The things that I will miss from Post are the friends that I have made over the years here. They have helped me through the good and bad. I consider these friends I made family, and family lasts forever.
