Up through my freshman year, I just loved gymnastics. As a sophomore, then my junior and senior years, I started to get burned out. That was when the whole scholarship thing became an issue. I figured I had done gymnastics for so long and worked hard enough that I couldn’t stop now.
We didn’t know that she would come in as prepared as she was. She came in her freshman year in great shape and determined to make an impact and did it right away. She’s been a starter since Day One and has been a leader on this campus since Day One.
I’ve known Rich since he was a kid and he definitely was my choice to take over the program. I can remember coaching Rich as a freshman in high school and even back then he was busy scheming plays and trying to think of new patterns that would work on the field.
In my freshman and sophomore years of college, I read dozens of books by the great thinkers of Western civilization. From Plato to Nietzsche, Homer to Shakespeare – you name it, I read it. At times it drove me crazy – picture reading hundreds of pages that sound like this every week: “All rational knowledge...
It’s been 29 years that I can think of that we’ve started a freshman shortstop. And that happened to be Kevin Brown, Jimmy’s little brother. (Strickland) played great defense. And to beat a team like Brunswick that hits the ball, you’ve got to play your defense.
I want to win state. It’s the same goal I’ve had every year since I was a freshman.
I’ve been getting it for so long. When I was a freshman in high school they said I wasn’t good enough to play varsity, and I ended up starting. Then they said I would not be able to play Division I, and I keep proving people wrong. If anything, it just gives me motivation to...
It is not easy to find someone your size once the Freshman Fifteen turns to the Sophomore Forty or the Senior Sixty. Even when, through some miracle of self-restraint and bulimia, college girls managed to continue to have feminine bodies, so many of these tacky sluts have never heard word one about what fashion entails.
It would be real bad if we were putting in a freshman goalkeeper in the goal and our whole back line is new too. It makes it easier when you have a guy like Burke who has been doing it for a couple of years and has some experience. It certainly eases the pain and...
What’s tough for Jenny is that she’s the only freshman on the team and she has an older sister who is just a phenomenal soccer player. She tends to be kind of quiet, but she comes out and plays hard. I think next year (after) Estelle has graduated, Jenny will come out of her shell...
She’s playing really well. But you have to remember she is a freshman, so when she gets in a physical game like we had tonight, she will struggle at times against juniors and seniors. But the upside to her game is very exciting. She’s certainly showing signs of being very good in the future.
We have a freshman that not only won the U.S. trials, but I think he can go onto the world meet and place really high. It just kind of shows where our program is headed and what we want to get accomplish. I think this is a big accomplishment for our program.
I think it was hard for him, initially, during his freshman year and a little his sophomore year, whether it was the intensity or my yelling or whatever. He probably had some trouble adjusting to that. I think we’ve both worked hard to try and understand the other and accept some differences.
With freshman they just don’t seem to have a sense of how to correctly do research and that’s probably because they’re just not sophisticated enough yet. With juniors and seniors, if they don’t understand plagiarizing it’s high time they did.
Matt had an outstanding day. He’s a freshman and he won both the mile and the two-mile.
We had our two freshman shoot 15-under (for the tournament), now that excites me. More than anything, it shows what they can do and that they are ready to step in and play. I know one thing, it’s going to be really exciting just watching guys try to get into the lineup. Now that’s a...
My freshman year of high school was just awkwardness all around.
