Coach Mitch will be a great addition to the staff, after all hes an O'Dea man! And the new post players are lucky to have an experienced player/coach in Kramer to show them the ropes.

Learned today that long time Pilot, Buzz Stroud, will be retiring at the end of June....

Buzz, the UP Associate Athletic Director/Operations, has been at UP since 1984 and has always been the behind the scenes guy who has kept the Athletic Department going while officially and unofficially performing every duty imaginable.

I doubt many of us will appreciate just how much Buzz has done for us as fans until after he retires, but it is safe to say his shoes will be hard to fill.  Amongst his varied duties, Buzz has been responsible for oversight of game management for all intercollegiate athletic events at UP....and although we may not see how much work he puts into each event, he is most often spotted on the court, diamond, or field when something needs fixing!

Whether it's a shot clock problem, a piece of sod that's come loose, an inebriated student, a railing that has fallen, or the PA announcer that has gone missing, Buzz has always been there to make sure the game or match could continue.

In many ways, Buzz is the last of the "old guard" of UP athletics that included Joe Etzel, Pat Sweeny, Clive Charles, Bill Irwin, and Jim Sollars. Hard to say what Buzz will do in retirement, but I hope he comes back as the PA announcer at Pilots Men's Basketball games....his deep, no nonsense voice would be a welcome addition in the Chiles Center.
