After finishing a long stretch of games the past couple of weeks with a number of guys shaking off bumps and bruises, it’s really nice to be able to concentrate on getting other priorities taken care of. I know that I for one will be able to clear my head for a couple of days before starting to prepare for a deep run in the playoffs.
The last game was against Pepperdine and was also senior night. This year was the first year that the seniors were honored at the end of the game instead of halftime. This being my first year, I don’t exactly know what it was like before but it seems to like the change was a good one. There was probably less distraction during the game. I really enjoyed seeing the seniors honored the way they were with roses and balloons. It seems like just a simple gesture but it surprisingly means a lot, at least to me. Even though I am contributing to the program for my first of two years I can’t wait to have the honor of being a senior next year.
A big shout out goes to David Sigley. The injury that occurred towards the beginning of the game was at the very least unfortunate. I for one was extremely sad to have the injury happen to someone on the team, especially someone who I have looked up to all year for guidance, advice, and friendship. I have respected you since the first day of hell week and I know everyone on the team, especially myself, would give up a lot if it was possible to take the injury back. My prayers go out to you and I wish you a speedy recovery brotha.
I can’t wait for playoff’s to come and this team to show exactly just how good we can be. Let the next few weeks be as restful as can be and yet productive at the same time.
The next game on the schedule is April 20th against Redlands, which is only a scrimmage.
