“I would like to take this opportunity to express my deep concern for what is taking place in the world with the COVID-19 virus. My heart breaks for all the families that have been directly affected by the virus and for the tough time our Clemson family is going through at the moment. Having our season cut short due to the virus has been very difficult on our student-athletes and coaching staff but we understand that what is taking place in the world right now is bigger than us and our team will do their part to be socially responsible and help in the fight to stop the spread of the virus.
I could not be more proud of the team for how they embraced me as their new Head Coach and their commitment to hard work and discipline that was asked of them. They showed tremendous growth not only as players and students but as young men.
I would like to thank everyone involved with the Men’s Tennis program for the countless hours and dedication they show day in and day out and the tremendous work they did for our student athletes. A special thanks to Matt Walters for your commitment to excellence and unwavering work ethic which you display daily. Thank you to Chuck McCuen, McClain Kessler, Tommy Evans, Damon Edmond, Yashica Martin, Kaleigh Best, Diana Sabin, Ashton Black, Kelsey Hagan and everyone else that works tirelessly for the Men’s Tennis program.
Thank you to all the fans that supported us this season. We have had record crowds at our matches and can’t thank you enough for your support. Please continue to support the program and make Clemson have the best home court advantage in the country.
I am blessed to be a part of this incredible university and work for the best staff in the country. Thank you to Dan Radakovich, Stephanie Ellison-Johnson, Jon Allen, Graham Neff, Eric George, Steve Duzan, Tina Murray and the entire compliance staff that helps me each and every day.
I am hopeful to return to work soon and continue to develop our student athletes on and off the court. The future is very bright for our Men’s Tennis program. GO TIGERS!”
