C1C Lowell Wallace's Player Diary
Jan. 21, 2003
The 2002 season is over for the Falcons and they finished with a win in the third place game at WWPAs. We finished 3rd in conference and 16th in the nation and it was due to all the hard work that everyone put in this year. The players on this team knew what they wanted and worked everyday to get to where they are now. They committed themselves to a higher purpose and made a lot of sacrifices to better themselves and the status of this program. I just wanted to take the time to thank all of those who supported us this season and made my last season a very memorable one and leave with a few parting words.
Parents- Your support was immeasurable this season just like that in seasons past. Your sons go through a tough regiment and school along with their dedication to polo and it is always a good feeling to see you at the games or just to get e-mails and packages saying hello. Few programs are blessed with a team of dedicated parents who give as much support as you do and everyone on the team thanks you. The seniors will miss your cheering sections in the crowd and your kind words after every game even if the result wasn't very pretty, thank you.
Players- You are the epitome of hard work and dedication, it was inspiring to see how hard you guys worked and a pleasure to see rise above adversity and become the men you are today. You guys are also the funniest guys around and I enjoyed hanging out with you guys and seeing you guys everyday at practice. Whatever happens at this place always keep your chins up and remember who your family is both here and at home. Whatever the future holds for you embraced and apply yourselves everyday like you do in polo.
Remember Thoreau's words, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams".
This is my last player diary for the season and it has been an honor and a privilege to be associated with program and everyone around it. I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to play here and the opportunity to play with every person on the team, parents your sons are remarkable men.
