    Fantastic. He could have a career as a sports writer if he wanted it. Thanks for posting this.

    Says a lot about the team that they have the confidence to share the UCLA loss as a rally point coming off of the BYU game. I think they are going to alright this year.

    I was reading this to my GF this morning as she was getting ready for work. I was choking up at the end and she was crying trying to put on her makeup! This should be pinned.

    ..impressive......made me think that it would almost be a waste if he pursues basketball after college instead of something like Medicine,Law, Politics, etc where he can make a difference in the lives of many. Not many people his age have that type of insight and introspection and can express it in writing.

    Think he may have used some artistic license, no way a kid playing intramural didn't know who he was

    My feelings upon reading the article were the same - exactly!

    I am so happy for the joy he has experienced being part of this team and the Zag family. His article gives the reader some insight into this, as well as the pain the players feel when they underperform. All the best, and a big thank you to a fine addition to Gonzaga's legacy, as well as the rest of the team.

    You never met some of the guys I played intramurals with!!

    Had to convince them wearing their pocket protectors during games was a bad idea.

    That would have been at the beginning of his redshirt year, so not totally out of the question.

    I'm a little late to the thread - wow, great, awesome, fantastic - all of the good words to describe this article have been used up already, so I have nothing new to contribute, other than I want this to be the year so bad. Not just for me and my purely selfish reasons, but for everyone. Them. You. All of us. Go Zags! Let's do this!!
    That was fun. Let's do it again.

    And as a Husky, you're pretty anonymous.

    My wife and I both read this wonderful article and it touched us deeply.

    Coming to get to a FF and to improve his social life with other students!

    How lucky we are to have shared a part of his life with us this season! I hope he comes back for his "Senior Year" so that we can watch him standing next to his family on Senior Night!

    THANKS Nigel for all these wonderful memories!

    Such a great piece. One of my favorite Zags. If he stays another year, he will probably be top 3 for me, along with Turiaf and Morrison. Regardless, lucky to have this Zag leader for this special season.
