Brighton Lee Sagal is a YouTube star and, with his father Jared, hosted the first-ever TopTekkers Live! last Friday. As part of the show, Brighton hosted a LIVE Q&A session, answering questions as they came in to the TopTekkers Facebook page. Here's what he had to say:

How long have you been playing?

I’ve been playing my entire life. When I was born, my dad would like me by my hands and I would kick the ball!

Which exercise gets your heart pumping the most?

Probably jumping jacks.

What’s for dinner today?

It’s my mom’s birthday and she wants pizza!

How many subscribers do you have?

This is a TopTekkers thing, we can’t shout out ourselves! (Yes you can, Brighton! Brighton and his cousins have a YouTube channel called Kickin Cousins that has more than 300,000 subscribers!)

Xbox or Playstation?

Xbox. I like Xbox.

What type of cake is your mom going to get?

Confetti cake? I don’t know, it just says birthday cake on the box.

Who is your favourite player?

Messi. My favourite player is Messi.

Did your dad ever play?

Yeah he played second and third division.

What’s your favourite drill?

My dad made up a drill called The Monster Maze. It’s a bunch of cones just randomly put out and you have to get through them and shoot.

What position do you play?

I play Centre Midfield

What’s your favourite soccer team?

Either Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain

How many hours a day do you practise?

I mean, today I only did like an hour and a half but normally like three or four.

Do you play Fortnite?

Yeah, I do!

Do you play FIFA?


What’s your favourite skill move?

I have one I made up myself. You jump over the ball and do an Iniesta.

Which music motivates you?

There’s a rapper named NF that I like. He’s not the biggest, but he’s pretty good.

Who should I look up to to do step-overs?

De Bruyne maybe?
