My daughter Kelly, my grandson Zane and I arrived at the John McKay Center at 9:30 a.m. We were able to meet a few new players.
Since a team meeting was scheduled for 10:30 a.m., the three of us walked over to Heritage Hall.
While touring the second floor, Trojan Candy saw cardinal and gold football uniforms on the field in front of the John McKay Center. The three of us darted down to the field. It was time for the team pictures! The players were lined up numerically from one to ninety-nine.
After the team picture was taken, Trojan Candy walked among the players.
The photographer was now taking position pictures. It was the perfect time to take pictures of new and old friends.
After that picture, the rest of the team started walking back into the John McKay Center. Kelly, Zane and I decided to continue our tour of Heritage Hall. As we walked toward Heritage, two familiar faces were walking towards us. Don Hill and Lamar Dawson (7/14/2011) posed with Zane. It was so nice to visit with Lamar again. Then, boldly, I asked Don if I could interview him. Lamar just smiled. He had been interviewed by yours truly four years ago! Don said that I could. FIGHT ON, Lamar!
Don, who is from Boise, Idaho, is a red-shirt Sophomore. He is majoring in Sociology. Kelly smiled with approval. She majored in Sociology at Harvard. Don started playing football in the fifth grade. He is an Outside Linebacker on the team. I asked him more questions as quickly as I could since he had to return a phone call. Don said that his favorite food is pizza. His favorite movie is one that he just saw with the team, "Straight Outta Compton." Lastly, he likes to listen to Pandora.com/state music. Gucci Mane and Nane are his favorite artists. How's that for a quick five minute interview! Trojan Candy has not lost her touch! Thank you and FIGHT ON, Don!
Another super exciting day at USC!
FIGHT ON, my beloved USC Football Team!
