Dear Thunderbird Family and Friends:
I wanted to let you know this weekend I will undergo surgery to remove a small mass that was found in one of my lungs. Thankfully, this was discovered early enough that it shouldn't require any post-surgery treatment. However, I will be taking a leave of absence for the next four to six weeks to recover fully. Unfortunately, I won't be able to accept any visitors during this time, but good vibes and thoughts are always appreciated.
Every day I think of how blessed I am to be the Athletic Director at Southern Utah University. I love our student-athletes, donors, fans and our staff. Over the next several weeks, I will have limited availability. Do not hesitate to reach out, but I invite you also to get in touch with other staff members.
We have great opportunities on our horizon as an Athletic Department. I am pleased with our fundraising efforts over the last few weeks and invite you to get involved. I have full confidence in our administration both in athletics and on campus. I will be back soon and excited to help take SUU Athletics to new heights. Our future is healthy and bright.
My best to you,
SUU Athletic Director
