I just listened to Eric on Orange Nation and it occurred to me that out of all players, past and present, he is a visible face of the program. I’ve got to hand it to him, he is out there talking, giving back and speaking for SU basketball. I’m not sure we’ve had a former player in the role he’s put himself in, with a nod to the Pearl, DC and Carmelo. Those players are great, but in a different way Eric is out there and active doing things for SU and the community. The amount of time he puts in giving back is pretty cool. Now I watch a lot of SU stuff and maybe it’s not quite like I see it, but to me he’s transformed himself from the rough and tumble guy we loved, and everyone else hated, to a mature person who speaks well and presents a positive image for SU basketbal. I want to give him a nod and say keep it up! Don’t want to take away from anyone else, just give him props. Not sure I said it quite right, but I’m sure you’ll get what I’m saying.
