Dear Coaches, Players, and Parents,
I have been with the Stallions organization for 8 years and I could not have asked for a better community to be a part of. Over those 8 years I have formed relationships with coaches and players that will last me a lifetime. I want to thank everyone who is a part of the Stallions for the kindness, respect, and the memories that we have all shared.
Players, as your teammate, I would like to thank you for giving it your all everytime we stepped onto the pitch and for always having my back. I am really going to miss wearing number 12 on my back for you guys.
Coaches, thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching me everything I needed to know about being a great teammate, a great player, and overall a great leader. Without you I would not have the opportunity to play collegiate rugby at the University of Kentucky. Our coaches have taught each and every one of us how to play the game but most importantly you tied teaching us rugby into teaching us how to be better men.
To our parents, I feel you do not get enough credit for everything that you provide. Day in and day out you are there, supporting us as a team just as much as you are rooting for your own son. You have no idea how much it means to me as a player when walking off the pitch after a game, all of you are clapping and cheering whether we win or lose. You guys never discouraged us, just continuous appreciation. I think I speak for both the coaches and the players when I say you guys are just as big a part of this club as we are. I am really going to miss each and every one of you. Thank you!
