This past weekend I went to the Homecoming game at St. Mary’s. I used to spend a lot of time on the campus when I was teaching and coaching, but now not so much.
I try to make at least one football game a year to check out the team, and say hello to some of the coaches and staff I used to work with. It is always very nostalgic, even though I have only been away from the campus for a few years.
Before the St. Mary’s game started, I was standing along side the fence watching the teams warm up, and an old friend/boss of mine invited me to watch the game with him from the field.
It was great to be back at St. Mary’s for homecoming. Team looked great and so did the turf! 42-7. pic.twitter.com/VdfuOhr25i
