It is with great Pride and pleasure that I have been privileged to serve as the Hoops Club President. But after five successful years it is time for a new President to continue this club’s ascent. Because of your commitment we’ve grown from less than 200 members five years ago to 818 members this year. But more importantly than membership numbers, The Hoops Club has had as its core mission to support the student-athletes. Our club helped provide iPads, dress suits for travel and contributed towards the team’s foreign trip. We’ve been vital in making Penn State’s Coaches Versus Cancer a National leader. Thanks to your support, we’ve also been able increase the number of club events, creating more interaction while renewing old friendships and creating new ones that will last a lifetime.
An elite organization is only as good as its members and in particular I want to thank Steve Greer, CJ Wagner, Bill Fleckenstein and of course Paula Hendershot. Special thanks must also go to my wife Megan who really shared this responsibility with me.
As the Hoops Clubs moves to the next chapter I thank all of you for your support and your input. The next year promises to be an exciting one and we look forward to seeing all of you on the journey. Relentless Attitude and Intensity matter. That is why The Hoops Club is Penn State’s best. If we all step up our belief and commitment to The Hoops Club and to this program I believe this time next year we’ll be part of March Madness led by the Big Ten Coach of the Year.
