Alvernia University Mens Basketball will always hold a special place in my heart, just like everyone’s alma matter will. All the memories, championships, and most importantly all my teammates that have become family to me, make my college basketball career a truly unforgettable one. My teams were very successful all four years, with a regional championship my freshman year, followed by three consecutive conference titles and NCAA tournament appearances.
This year they secured the #1 seed in the conference playoffs and hosted the semi-final. They played a very tough game but came up short in the end. Although they won’t be playing in the conference championship, I am very proud of this team and especially the seniors. They showed a lot of resilience and heart throughout the season.
Huge shoutout to Chucky, Adam, and Tom on a great college career. They are the epitome of team basketball and model student-athletes. They have racked up three consecutive conference titles and have a chance to win a regional championship. Adam has made our team, and me in particular, much better because of how hard he competes in every practice. He will graduate next year with a Masters degree in Occupational Therapy. Tom has been the ultimate team player, as he participated in all activity with the team despite a serious injury which put him on IR his whole senior year. Lastly, Chuck capped his college career with his second listing on the All-Conference team, 1,000 point scoring bid, and owner of the most iconic shot in Alvernia history. You three should be proud of your accomplishments and I thank you for all you’ve done for me as a person and a player.
