Tallahassee, Fla. Junior Jean Baptiste, a transfer from the Florida A&M, walked on to the Florida State track and field squad after two successful seasons as a Rattler. The former Oak Ridge (Orlando, Fla.) High School standout was a member of the 2004 MEAC Indoor and Outdoor Championship teams as a 200m and 400m runner. The political science major was the 2002 400m district champion and region runner-up. He also ran a lef of the 1600m relay that finished second in the state in 2000. The 2002 All-Central Florida second team selection was also the Oak Ridge Team MVP during the season.
He sat down with Seminoles.com for a few minutes to divulge some of his likes and dislikes.
My favorite artist… I don’t really have a favorite rap artist but if I do like G-Unit.
My favorite actor… Mekhi Phifer.
My favorite class… Political Science Research Methods. You learn about statistics and how it applies to political science.
If I could spend the day with anyone… It would be my mom. We would just spend time at the house, relaxing because its something that I did over the summer but don’t get to do that often.
Basketball or Football… Basketball because growing up I played basketball. I didn’t participate in track until later but since I stopped growing, I had to do something.
