Holy smokes...time is absolutely flying by right now! Haven't done a Blog entry since Sept 4th, so had to get it done today before November rolls around. The last month has been extremely busy with recruiting including trips to Montreal, Toronto, Atlanta, and Knoxville, along with a recruit that came into town last week with his family on an official visit.
Basketball season is officially here with the NBA tiping off tonight, and most NCAA programs gearing up for games in the next week! For us, our season starts with a date vs George Mason on November 8th at the Patriot Center down the road in Fairfax, VA. Hard to believe the off-season is done and we're going to be going LIVE!
It's been a really good Fall so far and our team is working hard preparing for the season. Our guys have done a great job of adapting on the fly and learning new philosophies and concepts that come with a new coaching staff. We had the honor a couple of weeks ago to have the legendary Hall of Fame coach, Pete Carril, on campus to help instruct our guys and be here as a coaching mentor. For those who don't know, Coach Carril is recognized as the inventor of the "Princeton Offense" during his time as the decorated coach of Princeton University, and also worked as an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings...both were the most successful periods in their programs histories. Coach Carril was our head coach Mike Brennan's college coach, and has had a huge influence on him as well as John Thompson III (Georgetown), Chris Mooney (Richmond), Joe Scott (Denver), Sydney Johnson (Fairfield), Mitch Henderson (Princeton), and countless other coaches all over the world.
It was a huge honor to get to talk X & O's and coaching with one of the legends of the game and a Hall of Famer...what an experience!
Now the countdown's on to Tip-Off...what an awesome time of the year! Have a great week everybody and GO EAGLES!!
