I wasn’t going to write this column. I thought I had said everything I needed to say about my AU sports journey in my last column about my dad. That column flowed easily, my emotions and gratitude for my father and my family pouring out of my head like a rushing river. But, as I sat down to write a paper one night in the library with my swim teammates, I became overcome with another sensation of gratitude. And those feelings needed to be documented as well.
In 2001, USA Today sports journalist Christine Brennan wrote a column about her relationship with her father, Jim Brennan, in honor of his 75th birthday.

Three senior AU wrestlers traveled to New York City to compete for a national title at the 2016 NCAA championships led by head coach Teague Moore.

Just last month, Watson, now a junior in the School of Public Affairs, earned an honor much bigger than a flag: a spot on the U.S. Virgin Islands Olympic team.
“Great moments are born from great opportunity.”
I was the editor-in-chief of The Eagle for 382 days, and I’m not going to lie, the year and 17 days I spent as editor-in-chief were some of the best and worst days of my life. During that time, I laughed, cried, stressed and smiled more than I had in my three years at AU prior to taking on the position. But I left the paper in the competent hands of Shannon Scovel, and I can’t wait to see what she and her staff do next year.
