Jenni Carlson: Tell me about growing up in Killeen, Texas. Juaquin Iglesias: I spent my whole life in Killeen. My parents were in the military, but they got out before I was born. We were a real close family, tried to eat together all the time. We're still very close. JC: Did I read somewhere that your dad owns a barbershop? JI: He's actually been doing it for over 20 years. He started in the mall, working there. Now, he owns his own place and he has people working under him. JC: With your dad being a barber, does that mean you learned a little of that trade, too? JI: No, but I'm very picky about who cuts my hair, just knowing how good it could be watching my dad cut hair. But I couldn't cut my own hair if I tried. JC: What are you most picky about? JI: Everything. The way it's cut. The way it's edged up. It has to be perfect, or I get mad. I get really upset. JC: What if someone screws it up? JI: I'd probably just keep a hat on or stay inside. JC: So, if you're walking around with a hoodie ... JI: Then it's messed up. It actually happened to me when I went back to my grandma's house one time. She took me to some guy to cut my hair, and I was upset until it grew back. I was upset, but I was too young to say anything at the time. JC: Are you particular about anything else? JI: I'm very picky on what I eat, too. I just have a weird taste on things. JC: What do you eat? JI: Anything home cooked. And whatever my mom makes, I'll eat. JC: Good answer. Do you cook your own stuff? JI: Me and my girlfriend try every once in awhile, but she can't cook. JC: That's not a good answer, by the way. JI: She knows she can't. JC: Tell me a little about your heritage. With your name, is there some Hispanic heritage? JI: My dad, the whole side of his family. JC: Not a lot of guys playing college football have Hispanic heritage. JI: Some people come up to me and say that they're proud of me and excited that I'm doing it. JC: That's pretty heady stuff. How do you handle that? JI: It's big. I already put enough weight on my shoulders as it is. When people come up to you and say things like that ... it's just inspiring. It makes you want to just go out every day and work hard. Want to know what former Sooner helped convince Iglesias to come to Norman? Check out my blog at NewsOK.com.
