Hey Guys,

It's an exciting weekend for Boilermaker softball as we kickoff the 2007 season! We've been practicing indoors the past six weeks and I can't wait to see the team take the field on Friday. Don't worry, I'll have my camera. Coach Garza keeps talking about the sweet tea made in the South, so I'll be sure to try some of that as well as some BBQ. I've never been to Mississippi before, so I'm looking forward to the trip.

I stopped by the weight room last week and took some photos, thought you might like to learn a bit more about our strength coach and program. Below is some information on both!

If I can get to a computer over the weekend I'll be sure to drop a quick note, if not I'll talk to you next week.

Happy Trails!
