On Point: Derrick Wilson Blog Entry No. 4
July 9, 2014
I'm back! I hope everybody had a great and safe 4th of July weekend. Now it's back to the real world. So this week I have a cool story to tell you that I forgot to tell you last week.
So about two weeks ago, we got a chance to meet and play a pick-up game with one of the best quarterbacks in the league, the one and only Tony Romo. He was a really cool guy and very down to earth. He was also a lot better at basketball than I expected. He could shoot, good passer to no surprise and also had an arsenal of moves that caught some of our players off guard. Overall it was a great experience and I thought he was great person. So, thank you Tony for taking time out to come speak to us and also play some basketball with us as well.
I also I know that people are wondering how our new teammates have been since they have arrived on campus. To answer that question, they have been great. We all know that they are really good players, but they are also really good people and teammates. Matt, Gabe and Sandy have been doing well in workouts and are going to be really good for our program for this up coming year and the years to come. I'm proud to call them my teammates and really excited that they are here.
These past couple of weeks has been crazy in the sports world. The two specific sports I've been paying attention to are basketball and soccer/football (whichever one you prefer). I'll start with basketball. For these past weeks the discussion in the locker room has been about where players are going to go, specifically LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love because they are the three everybody has been talking about. Personally, I have no clue what any of those guys are going to do, but who ever ends up with those guys is going to be taking a step in the right direction. As for soccer, now that USA is out of the World Cup my back up team is Germany because it's my birthplace and I am what you call a band wagoner and I'm not ashamed to admit that. I have them taking it all.
You can tweet me at @akdwil12 if you have any other questions about our program or if you just want to have a conversation about any of the topics. I want to become more active on social media so make sure you do that and I'll try to answer the questions as best as I can. I'll be back next week and like always it been a pleasure.
