Dan and I would also like to dedicate my wod tomorrow to one of our fallen Oxy football brethren, Andy Collins. He may not have been a U.S. soldier but Dan and I went to battle with him many times on the gridiron. He like all these amazing men is lost but never forgotten. I am sure every one of us has a reason to wod tomorrow and if you don’t then do it for these men. In remembrance tomorrows HERO wod will be “BADGER.”

Andy Collins #1 in more ways than one . 1983-2011
