Okay let me start off by saying that I am so blessed to have had the privilege to play with these wonderful ladies. It has been so unbelievable how close we have gotten in the past few months and I would not have wanted to spend my first club experience with any other team. We have a bond so close that I don't think we can ever break even if we tried. Going into this I wasn't so sure about it. I didn't know anyone at all, but it didn't matter because once I met these girls they made me feel right at home. All the memories we have all shared are so unforgettable and I wouldn't have wanted to share them with anyone else. Everything about this team is unbelievable. The way we all pick each other up when we are down is just amazing. There is so much talent and passion on this team and it shows! Getting compliments from other coaches and players about how close we are on and off the court and how they can tell that we care about each other or any other compliment that we got down the road was really just an incredible feeling. As this season is coming to a very fast end I would just like to say how proud I am of each one of them, we have come so far as a team and as individuals. It is heartbreaking to say goodbye but I know that we all will cross paths a ton considering how close we have became. I love each and every one of these girls. You ladies have had such a remarkable impact on my life! I will never forget 'Black Magic 16 Roush'
