“Hey Tiger Fans,
It’s a great day to be a Tiger! I’m writing to you all from our new capital city, Oklahoma City. We arrived yesterday and had a nice day of relaxation to get ready for the exciting week we have ahead of us.
Now, it is time to put the work in and get prepared for the superb teams that we will face throughout this week. It is such an honor to be here surrounded by the most talented teams in the nation. Even though we all represent different states and universities, sharing the passion for the game has brought us here for a fun-filled week.
Being a freshman, it’s pretty surreal to be here my first year. This year has given me a new family, and I’m so happy that this journey with my best friends has led us to the ultimate destination. The atmosphere is quite different amongst the team these last two days.
Everyone has a sense of excitement that is apparent by just looking at them. We’re a pretty fun team to begin with, but lately there has been more dancing, laughing, and overall fun. Also, walking around and having people wish you luck and say they’ll be watching is an awesome feeling. I can speak for the team to say that this is something that we have dreamt about since we first started playing.
Thanks for the love and support Tiger fans! Whether it’s a text message, wall post or tweet: we appreciate all of your words of encouragement.
Our events for today included practice at Oklahoma State and a banquet with all eight teams earlier tonight. Our team energy is higher than ever, and we are so excited to step back on the diamond. It was so neat to be around all the teams tonight at the banquet.
If you plan on joining us in Oklahoma City on Thursday, make sure you WEAR PURPLE and stop by our official tailgate led by the one and only, the man, the myth, the legend Brian Trosclair. I hear the pastalaya is to die for.
Thanks for everything and GEAUX TIGERS!
