First post since arriving in Ireland a couple of weeks ago. My name’s William Archambault and I’m one of 4 USNI Scholar Athletes that will be pursuing a Master’s degree while playing professional basketball as well as participating in various community outreach programs in Galway, Ireland.
Here’s a little info about myself. I graduated from Davidson College in 2010 and was one of the members of the team that went all the way to the Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament in 2008. Many of you might know one of my famous teammates, Stephen Curry, future all-star point guard for the Golden State Warriors.
After graduating from Davidson College, I had a short stint in China, were I played for a professional travel squad. Following my trip to China, I was hired by my old high school, where I ended up teaching Physical Education or what most of you probably call P.E for about 6 months.
So as you can see from my picture, we’ve already started reaching out to the community. Running basketball camps in Galway have been very interesting, especially since Galway TITANS coaches Matt Lint and Joe Coughlan are always around trying to push the young kids to reach their potential!
I’ll let you all know how this week is going next Sunday!
