Are you wondering how Utah Tech University student-athletes celebrate Halloween?

Hank Dodson, a junior accounting major from Summerfield, North Carolina

What was your best Halloween costume?

My best Halloween costume was the mermaid man from SpongeBob. My best friend and fellow
teammate, Chase, dressed up as Barnacle Boy; we went as that last year for our team
scrimmage.

How are you celebrating Halloween this year?

This year I’m handing out candy at the Utah Tech trunk or treat with the team, dressed up in
western wear and playing in the annual dress-up scrimmage.

What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

My favorite Halloween tradition is definitely the dress up scrimmage. It’s a lot of fun to see
everyone trying to play in their costumes and see all the different costumes.

Do teams celebrate together? How?

All the sports teams get together for the trunk or treat to hand out candy to the kids, each team
has a different theme. In past years, the baseball team has been cops and robbers, Hawaiian theme, etc.

Blake Hofheins, a freshman pre-med major from Salem

What was your best Halloween costume?

I would say my ninja costume was my best costume.

How are you celebrating Halloween this year?

This year I’ll be celebrating Halloween with the boys on the team. Not exactly what we will do yet, but it might be crazy.

What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

My favorite Halloween tradition is definitely passing out candy back home with my family.

Jack Walker, a junior design major from Cedar Hills

What was your best Halloween costume?

Best costume: chick magnet

How are you celebrating Halloween this year?

I will be celebrating at my parents’ house for the annual chili and scones party my mom throws. Then after, I’ll have to make an appearance at the baseball Halloween party.

Celebrating with the team?

We celebrate as a team every year by playing a “dress up scrimmage” where we all show up to
the field in costumes and play a game against each other. It’s always one of the last
scrimmages of the fall and never disappoints seeing everyone’s ideas.

What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

My favorite Halloween tradition is chili and scones with my family and friends. Growing up, my house was the spot for everyone to go because there was endless food and drinks.

Kaleb Hatch, a sophomore business marketing major from El Paso, Texas

What was your best Halloween costume?

My favorite Halloween costume was when I dressed up as a football player as a kid.

How are you celebrating Halloween this year?

I will be celebrating with some of my teammates and their spouses.

What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

I absolutely love candy so trick-or-treating was always my favorite.

Do teams celebrate together? How?

Yes, teams celebrate together. Especially after big wins. For us, it involves lots of music and
dancing.
