I want to start off by talking a little about my time at the University of Louisville. I have spent the past four years here in Kentucky and I have learned a few things as a student athlete. First, Rick Pitino is a phenomenal coach and it was a life altering experience playing for him as a Cardinal. There are countless stories that I could share about intense conditioning or hard practices, but ultimately, he equipped me with the intangible qualities of life better than any academic. That is not to say that my knowledge has not grown exponentially from the faculty at U of L; on the whole I have found that the university receives far less credit nationally than is warranted for its academic prowess.
To all of my friends and teachers at the University of Louisville I would like to say thank you as I approach a new chapter of my life. Kentucky, and specifically the University of Louisville will always have a special place in my heart an remain a home for me in my mind.
