April 4th began my mentorship with the Ohio Northern University football program. As I began my day first day I went into the King Horn Center at Ohio Northern University into the Athletic Offices to meet with Coach Dean Paul. A brief meet and great with a few of the other coaches we needed to find me a work area. Because most of the offices were already occupied I moved into what I call the biggest office in the building, the VIP lounge that overlooks the basketball court and swimming pool. This has become my new office for my time here with ONU and I cannot complain because of the room in which I have to work.
So today was recruiting, recruiting and some more recruiting. The King Horn center was home to a lot of recruits looking to become part of the Polar Bear team. While the coaching staff was excitedly buzzing around I was working on finding the best deals available for airfare for a high profile recruit from California. After meeting with some of the staff and head coach I started on my first task which was getting the best deal available for the recruit and to make sure that the Athletic department stayed within their budget for recruiting trips. While day one was short, I cannot wait to get back at it tomorrow and learn even more as my journey continues toward my goal.
