Things have a tendency to move pretty quickly around here – almost too quickly to catch up and fully appreciate what has transpired. On a day-to-day basis, we concern ourselves with concrete items such as wins or losses, how many points a team puts up, or whether the season culminates in championship glory.
Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the small, but significant individual moments. Rest assured that it’s not our intent to paint with broad strokes.
