The Arizona State freshman tells about ice fishing and Brett Favre.

Page Too: You’re from Minnetonka, Minnesota. Where is that and what is it like?

Trent Lockett: It’s about 15 or 20 minutes outside of Minneapolis. It’s a real nice neighborhood, nice and quiet.

PT: A Vikings fan, I presume?

TL: Yeah. They’re having a good season. I wish I could go to the game Sunday, but we have study hall.

PT: Were you in favor of the Brett Favre signing?

TL: Back home, like the day he signed, I was at Target and they already had Favre jerseys out. People in Minnesota were definitely ready to have him come out.

PT: Ever go ice fishing?

TL: I have. When I was 8 years old I used to play around, and one time I stomped too hard and broke the layer of ice and my whole right leg fell in. My cousin had to get me out of the hole.

PT: Be honest. Did you come out here just to avoid winters?

TL: No, that’s not the main reason. But it’s definitely a bonus. I love the weather. Back home people are dealing with snow.

PT: How do they react when you tell them it’s 75 degrees here?

TL: They are very jealous. That’s the main thing. It’s kind of hard to comprehend. When I was back home talking to people out here I couldn’t imagine it’s 75 when you’re sitting in the middle of winter and it’s snowing.
