Fondest memory:

“My fondest memory at the U of M was becoming the first African-American Pouncer mascot for the University from 2005-08. I was able to travel to our football bowl games and NCAA basketball tournament runs. The 2008 Final Four was the highlight of my college career. For a few months I felt like a superstar with all the autograph sessions, photos and commercials. During that time I felt like I was a valuable asset to our victories in the tournament.”

Future of U of M:

“The future is extremely bright for the University of Memphis. From our centennial celebration to our increase in enrollment, Centers of Excellence, the support of our alumni, development of our athletic programs and community involvement, we are shaping up to tackle another 100 years head on!”

U of M pride:

“I have U of M pride because I have invested blood, sweat and tears into the growth of the institution since I stepped foot on campus. I am the first person in my family to attend college, so I give many thanks to the University for allowing me to have the opportunity to grow and blossom into the man I am today. I want to always be a voice for my institution and spread the great news about where I went to college.”
