What is your favorite memory of ODU
Working for Joe Law SID, with Carol Hudson as
assistants in the old Sports Information office near the swimming
pool 1970-78. One of my assignments was to do the official NCAA
stats or play-by-play with David Willett who typed over 100 wpm.
But, one time Joe Law sent me to Philadelphia Textile because they
did not have a stat crew and no one else from the Sports
Information Office could make it there. So my wife and I did the
stats with my 4 year old daughter's assistance (Michelle). After
the game, Wilson Washington attempted do put her inside the net for
a photo opportunity but she was too frightened to complete the
shot. The memory that keeps on giving - meeting with Ed Fraim every
year as he challenged me to continue my support and how that
professionalism continues today through Jena Virga, Casey Cegles
and others in the Development office.
Why do you support ODU athletics and its
student-athletes/what makes you the most proud of
I don't know how the student-athletes juggle
their hours to accomplish their studies and athletic performance -
so every little bit of help and support is put to good use. Also,
the great work that Marty Bradley, his staff and the student
trainers do to keep ODU student athletes in tip-top shape is making
a big difference. Of course, I am going to say that because my son
Joseph graduated from that program in '01.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about
We have been basketball Season ticket holders from
1985. We also had season tickets prior to 1985 - in the Field House
from 1971 thru the first years at Norfolk's Scope until 1978, but
then we moved to Dearborn Michigan to work for Ford Motor Company,
so 78 - 84 we only got to see road games - Purdue (NIT), UCLA
(NCAA), and the Lady Monarchs two years in a row at the AIAW
National Championships in Greensboro, NC and Mt Pleasant, MI as
well as the Detroit Coca Cola Classic.
