Testudo comes north! Great to be with @7BOOMERESIASON & a room full of #terp nation tonight at #MarylandInManhattan. Did my heart good to see all that red! #FearTheTurtle


It was such an easy #NationalDecisionDay decision to choose @UofMaryland 19 years ago, and my experience did not disappoint. Met my wife. Discovered my passion for education. Enjoyed a national championship. Will proudly rep some red @UnderArmour after work.
