I played NAIA tennis for Montreat College in Black Mountian N.C. I wanted to go there and on my visit I met the coach. I told him I wanted to play. He ask me if I brought my racket, I said, "ah...ya." He said, "let's play." He signed me 15 minutes later.
After a successful year I transferred to UK. I thought I could walk-on there. Wow was I wrong. They have one of the top programs in the SEC.
I then became the equipment manager for the UK bat cats....and as they say, the rest is history.....
Drive to Hunington and meet the coaching staff. They are not "gods." I would be impressed if a kid drove to were I coached and said, " I want to play for you and I have no doubt I CAN play for you."
