On Point: Derrick Wilson Blog Entry No. 9

Derrick Wilson's senior campaign is officially underway.
Sept. 4, 2014

Hey, what's up?

I'm back everyone. Initially my blogging days had come to an end about a month ago, but after begging them to let me continue, here we are again. I'm excited to continue to tell all of you what the team and I have been up to and I hope you all are too.

After summer school, we all got a chance to step away from Marquette to see our families and relax. It was good to go home and see my parents down in San Antonio, Texas, but after about a week I was excited to get back because the hot weather was too much for me. I also missed my brothers, who I spent all summer with hanging out and doing what we love - which playing basketball. So, I am excited to be back with my second family and start working.

School started last week and it was good to get back into the flow of things. I have to admit though, it feels a little weird being a senior. It seems like I got here yesterday and in the blink of an eye it's my last year, but it will be my best.

We also started conditioning last week and that's one area we need to improve. The conditioning consists of stations with sprints in the middle and the end. Each week we will have more sprints added on and different conditioning stations added on.

Everybody is in pretty good shape, but with a smaller roster all of us have to be in elite level shape to accomplish our goals as a team.

All of us have also been able to get back to our personal shooting schedules and soon we will start working out with the coaches, having defensive and offensive individual workouts. I'm excited for our individuals because this will give us a chance to see what we need to continue to work on and will also help us improve our skills.

Well that's all I have this week. I should have some interesting stuff in the weeks to come. Also don't forget to tell your friends and family that I'm back and I am looking forward to keeping you all updated.
