The John Brown University Athletic Department was abuzz with the excitement of National Signing Day for the 2015 women’s soccer team. JBU Athletics announced on Wednesday, Feb. 4 each new addition for the 2015-2016 season over social media platforms.
Last week, Griffin Brady’s dunk was No. 3 on Sport Center’s Top 10 highlights. The featured dunk occurred during a game against No. 16 ranking Mid-America Christian. The Golden Eagles lost to the Evangels 84-74. Brady, No. 25, is a 6 ft. 5 in. forward from Salt Lake City, Utah.
All JBU athletic teams participate in The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics’ program called Champions of Character. The program strives to “change the culture of sport,” as stated the Champions of Character website.
How does an athletic team evolve and change from year to year? Some years may be punctuated by victories while others are impacted by searing losses. This can be said for any sport, but it has been especially true of the John Brown University women’s basketball team.
