Congratulations Nick!

Ochai is claiming the team. Lots of talent around him and supporting him. I remember Matt’s article from Ochais freshman season about his leadership. The fact that he sacrificed his body and still came back is a great lead for the team. They need the ugly part of the competition.

Loved CBs presser response.

The 5 doesn’t need to be fancy but does need to be gritty. Even Landon Lucas gritty.

Glad you remembered that. I'll never forget how much it stood out to me. Part of it was how impressive Ochai was. Another big part of it was how lacking in the leadership department that team was.
