Favorite ODU Sports Moment

Without a doubt, Trey Freeman's game winner against Murray State to send the Monarchs to Madison Square Garden.  That is one that I will remember for a long time. 

Three words to describe the ODAF

Motivated, supportive, family

Favorite reason for working at ODAF

Being a part of the ODU community at a time of exponential growth for both the athletic depatment and the university as a whole. It's a great time to be a Monarch!
