My first real Wahoo memory was waking up from a nap at the end of the 1984 Peach Bowl to discover that the Hoos were victorious. I was hooked as a fan and enthusiastically supported the home state team as a six year old and ever since.

My first live Wahoo sporting event was the home football game against VPI in 1987 with my Hokie grandfather, my grandmother, and my younger brother. The Hoos won when they stopped a Hokie two point conversion at the end and my grandfather threatened to make me walk home from Charlottesville.

While college basketball is my favorite sport, Brian O'Connor's baseball program is my favorite team on Grounds. The 2015 championship run will always hold a special place in my memory as I watched most of the games with my newborn son.

Pro Bronco since the hire too. Go Hoos!
