Well, this has been a long time coming. I have been extremely busy over the last few months, with the big move and all. For those who don’t know, I moved across the country from California to Johnson City, Tennessee to get my master’s degree. “Why in the world would he move to Tennessee?” you might ask. I chose to move here to join a program that is centered around Sports Science. When I was doing research on the schools I might want to be a part of, I asked around, looked for the authors in research articles, and did everything I could to find a source for mentors who had both elite coaching and quality research experience. Tough criteria, I know. Two names kept coming up, and I decided to follow them to the other side of the country. Now, I am part of the graduate student population at East Tennessee State University, and I couldn’t be happier. More to come in later posts.
