So, over the weekend I flew down to Fort Worth to visit my best friend and just have a good weekend and one of the highlights of the trip was my chance to meet Stephan Hopkins on the flight home. I noticed him in the airport while I was waiting for the boarding call and thought he looked very familiar, but just couldn’t place the face. Not thinking too much of it we ended up sitting right next to each other on the plane. So I made small talk and asked if he was Stephan Hopkins in which he said yeah.
I told him he made the right choice for coming to Michigan and that we as fans couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on the team. We talked a little about his adjustment to college and he talked about how everyone is crazy fast and athletic. I asked him if he got home sick at all (always a fear of mine for kids who live far), but he said he was at first but now he’s doing great.
The point to this post is that with talking with him the team seems very focused and everyone is putting in the hard work. Hopkins was a very well spoken kid and seems to have a good head on his shoulders and knows that he has to compete and is willing too. He is the type of kid that I want in our uniform.
