|University of Nevada, Reno -- Wolfpack|
Wayyyyyyyyyyyy back when I was a freshman at UNR I was at every single home football game that there was. I loved the rush of standing in the student section, with all the energy and Nevada love there was. You could feel the bleachers rumble & the crowed roar after anything involving the Wolfpack happen -- good or bad. Sophomore year I remained a loyal football go-er too, rain, snow, you name it -- if there was a football game...I was there in my Nevada apparel with all the other students. My sophomore year is when I was introduced to a few of the guys on the team, mainly because they were also rushing for frats -- they were at all the shindigs around campus, they were in a bunch of my classes. You could never miss them around school because they would always be decked out in navy sweats, and the largest guys around. One of them I was lucky enough to get to know particularly well because he was dating my roommate, and best-friend of the time, Kate. He was always over at our house, we had a family photo and everything. I dubbed him "Mochi", he didn't approve....I thought it was funny.
The last few years I didn't see him around very much, probably because I moved up to Truckee and stopped going to football games.
I was fortunate enough to go to the biggest rival game of the season (FINALLY) this year, UNR v. UNLV! It was fantastic to be around the all my fellow Nevadans, watch some football and drink some beer. Randomly, I ran into Dontay in Awful Awful at 3 o'clock in the morning on New Years Eve. ha!
University of Nevada, Reno has definitely made a name for themselves in football. Over All-Star weekend here in LA I saw a girl with a UNR shirt on, I got all excited and asked her if she went there...she said, no, but her brother did and he was on the football team. That automatically made her awesome! It is really cool to see the kids I used to go to school with make into the pro leagues! They deserve it, they work REALLY hard!
Dontay recently joined the Bangals. He is unbelievably fast...running a 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, and has a vert jump of 42 inches. He is pretty legit!
Good luck Dontay!
