FAVORITE ODU SPORTS MOMENT
Despite the outcome of the game, my favorite ODU sports moment has to be the events surrounding the Myrtle Beach Bowl with the ODU Football team in 2021. When we ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, it was the loudest and most excited that I have ever seen an ODU crowd!
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE ODAF
Relationships, Growth, Excellence
FAVORITE REASON FOR WORKING AT THE ODAF
As a former collegiate student-athlete, it is an honor to have the opportunity to help provide resources and to serve the programs that support a world-class student-athlete experience at ODU.
