Another GREAT Day in the Desert

Yesterday was a great day, as I was able to participate in the Arizona Letterwinner Golf tournament out at Arizona National. It was great being able to visit with so many wonderful former student-athletes. It was especially special since I got to play with my son, Tyler Neal, a former golfer at the UofA. He was playing in his first ever alumni event.

After the golf, I had to hurry over to the stadium where I met up with my brother, Milton Neal, who is the head equipment manager for the WSU Cougars. It was like another homecoming for me personally, as I was able to meet up with a bunch of my former Cougar friends that I was able to work with during my years at WSU. I was able to visit with: Paul Wulff, their head coach, Mike Levenseller, Malik Roberson, Jody Sears, Chris Ball and many more. A true homecoming weekend for me.

I am getting ready to head over to the stadium this morning where it should be another exciting day for Arizona Wildcat football. Now it is time to get down to some serious work. Should be fun!

Below are some pictures from yesterday:
