Cole Sotnick is a junior who has been working on Viking for one year. He plays hockey, lacrosse, and basketball, but his favorite is ice hockey because of the physicality and fast pace of the game. The athlete that inspires Sotnick the most is football player JJ Watt, “because of his dominance on the field and his commitment to helping his community” Sotnick said. His go-to pre-game song is “Dreams and Nightmares” by Meek Mill, and he likes to eat oatmeal.
