Warren Saba is featured for our Pirate Gameday content previewing East Carolina versus Connecticut. Check out his Q&A.

Q: Who is the biggest trash talker on the team?

A: I’m not sure, everyone talks a little trash. Maybe Darius (Pinnix) or Xavier Smith. Those would probably be the top two guys.

Q: What about you? Do you talk a lot on the field?

A: I don’t. I don’t talk trash on the field, I’m just competitive. It’s not trash talk, it’s just competitive spirit.

Q: When you’re away from the field playing video games, is it on Xbox or Playstation? What is your favorite game?

A: I’m a Playstation guy. One of my favorite games has to be Spiderman. It’s been a good one, but I play a lot of Madden as well of course.

Q: Who gets made fun of the most for their fashion sense?

A: In terms of fashion, I’m not sure. I’d probably say Xavier (Smith) just to mess with him.


Saba’s blocked punt for a touchdown versus Old Dominion on Sept. 28 was the first blocked punt TD for the Pirates since Sept. 10, 2015. Both of ECU’s blocked punts this season have come on the road, at ODU and at UCF.
