The Tuesday 10 is a weekly Q&A session with 2018 High Performance Squad members, letting fans know some of the nation's best divers on a more fun and personal level. This week's Tuesday 10: Lyle Yost

1. What movie can you watch over and over without getting tired of it?

LY: "Probably the Harry Potter movies. Those and the books were my whole childhood."

2. What's the most unusual place you've visited?

LY: “Cuba for sure. It was like taking a step back in time with the old cars and no cell service. It was really amazing."

3. Do you think aliens exist?

LY: “Absolutely. There's too much space for us to be the only ones out there. This is just our little corner of the universe."

4. Who do you feel like you know even though you've never met?

LY: “LeBron. I feel like we'd just hit it off, you know? #DefendtheLand #StriveForGreatness"

5. What near future predictions do you have?

 LY: “Cavs in 6."

6. What language do you wish you could speak?

LY: “It sounds cliché to say all of them, but I would really love to be able to speak eight different languages. My list is: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Thai, Russian and Mandarin.”

7. What's your good luck charm?

LY: “My lucky hat. I’ve had it for years, since it used to be dark blue. Now it’s light grey and it’s falling apart at the seams, but it still comes with me to every meet.”


8. What's the coolest animal you've seen in the wild?

LY: “Probably a coyote. I'm from the Midwest. We don't have a lot of cool wildlife."

9. What super power would you like to have?

LY: “Flying. I love flying in planes, and I'd love to try skydiving one day. It's just a really unique perspective on things, looking down from the sky at everything really tiny on the ground. Maybe that's why I'm a diver."


10. What word is a lot of fun to say?

LY: "Padiddle (the game with the cars with one headlight).
