Each week during the season The Atlanta Journal-Constitution will conduct a question-and-answer session with a Falcons player about their off-field interests and activities. The intention is to give fans some insight into the players and a little sense of what makes them tick.
This week we spoke with Kevin Cone. The wide receiver out of Georgia Tech is from Stone Mountain and went to St. Pius. He revealed that if he weren’t playing football for a living he’d likely work as an engineer.
Q. What’s in your iPod?
A. I have all kinds of music. I have rap, R&B, country. I have some classic to calm me down. I have all kinds of stuff in my iPod.
Q. What was the last book you read?
A. The last book I finished reading was “Hunt for Atlantis” by Andy McDermott. I’m reading ‘Tomb of Hercules” by McDermott right now. In the “Hunt for Atlantis” they are trying to find Atlantis. [“Tomb of Hercules”] is a spinoff of the book. They think there are more mythical things that can be found, and they think Hercules might be real, so they are trying to find that.
Q. What’s your favorite movie?
A. I don’t think I have a favorite movie. I have a group of about 20 movies that I just love. I don’t think I have one in particular. “Baby’s Day Out.” I love that. It’s so funny. “Major Payne.” All the Harry Potters. I have a lot of them.
Q. If you weren’t a football player, what would you be doing?
A. I’d probably be an engineer. That’s what I went to school for, mechanical engineering. I’ve always wanted to design things. I think it would be interesting to design sports equipment.
Q. If you had one off day away from football, how would you spend it?
A. I would probably just go home, hang out with my mom and dad and my brother and sister if they were home. Just go home and hang out at the house.
