Soaking in the Hollywood excitement at USC
Yesterday, I was out with my buddy
Dillian steps up, cool as can be, and nails a bull's-eye on his first shot.
I wish life was that easy. I wish you could hit everything first shot.
It's not though, which leads me to a recent weekend trip that I took. I flew to the left coast, Los Angeles, for my official visit to USC. One week, I was in Gainesville to check out
After last Friday night's 41-10 win against Overbrook (Pa.), I jumped on a plane. It was a long flight, but I kept thinking about our front four at George Washington High. Not gonna lie, I think we're the best in the area.
I arrived at the airport and checked out Hollywood Boulevard. It was really cool, totally different than Philly. I ate at In & Out Burger for the first time. I have to say, the burger was amazing. Not sure if you've seen me lately, but I can definitely put away a burger or three. And some fries too.
Here's what impressed me about USC. The guys get amped. I was sitting there in the kickoff meeting and you're immediately struck by the fact that this isn't a typical team. The meeting, simply, is out of control. The guys are completely off the wall. Then, during the team dinner, they get really subdued and quiet. Focus, absolute focus. It showed to me discipline and where there mind is at. The Trojans are all about business.
The game was cool and the facilities are definitely impressive. I enjoyed taking it all in and was mentally taking notes. The crowd was different than at Florida, more chill and laid back, subdued. That's not how I would describe the team, though.
I had a few opportunities to meet with coach
I found out that he's a great man and I enjoyed just being able to see him as a person and not the coach on the sidelines. I liked being able to talk with him about life.
It's been a crazy few weeks. It's exciting, but these official visits are a lot of work.
Until next time ... hopefully I can get a bull's-eye soon.
