A Very Busy Christmas for the Wildcats!!!

I am just now sitting down and writing as I have just got back to my hotel room from a dinner I went to tonight with our coaches and the Oklahoma State coaches. It seems to be the first break I have gotten since early yesterday morning, Christmas. So much has happened, but I wanted to blog a little about what all happened yesterday.

After Benny and 3 other managers unloaded everything at University of Incarnate Word on Christmas eve, we went early yesterday to get the team all set up for the next few days.

After getting everything set up, we had practice yesterday afternoon, then back to the hotel for a very nice Christmas dinner.

Below are some pictures from yesterday:

UIW has a GREAT facility for us to use this week:
This is our equipment room in the players locker room area at UIW:

Here I am setting out valuable bags in the coaches lockers so they can put all their stuff in to, then we lock them all down during practice:

We brought our own towels for the players and coaches to use this week at UIW:
We brought all the essentials for our coaches to use each day:
