It’s been one heck of a ride for Valpo Hoops and a fun one to watch. Coach Bryce and the guys certainly put together a pretty darn good season and I am already anxious for what will come next year.
This brings me to the point I wanted to make – it has been very cool getting to know a lot of fellow athletes here at Valpo. Nothing makes watching college sports more fun than being able to cheer for some good friends. Actually knowing the players out there on the court or the field brings a whole new meaning to support. The entire athletics department is truly one big family. Being a normal student anywhere else wouldn’t give you the opportunities I have had to develop friendships with star athletes on every one of Valpo’s sports teams, so I can support them as more than just a fan, but as a friend. That is just one of the many reasons I am thankful that I ended up here.
Well, in a few short days, we will be heading down to Alabama for a week long “spring training” trip. I like to call it training because it really isn’t ”spring break!” Luckily for us, with the two week break that Valpo gives us, we can usually go home to spend time with family/friends and then head down south for some training/practice that will kick off our spring season.
