Random run-in with Wade and other odds n ends

Charlie Wade parking as I was leaving the arena this morning. Saw on FB that he had been part of Rim Pac flight, got to land and take off from the USS Ronald Reagan so asked him about it.

He spent a few days on the carrier and was impressed by our young service people. said he had a few meals with them and obviously had no problem talking to 18- to 22-year-olds since he does it all the time.

We talked a little about Taylor Averill and his playing for the U.S. team this week in Mexico (first match tonight). He’ll be on a recruiting trip in California starting tomorrow and hoping to get down to Tijuana for Saturday’s final.

Also asked about recruiting, where he was on a couple of local kids. He said they’re ready to start a boys club program and excited since Milan Zarkovic would be a huge part of it.

Said he had looked at a couple of foreign players but none that would be an immediate impact.

on a personal note, thanking Chris McLachlin for the avocados from his back yard. The guacamole came out pretty good.

    Very disappointed with the recruiting class, We got Pukahi and Owens who Im excited about and that’s about it. Gonna need Fey or Mol to step it up big time.

    well that’s one way to recruit more top flight local players … coach ’em and bring ’em up the ranks. how long as the boys’ club idea been floating around before they could finally push it forward, i wonder? … hopefully, they don’t just become more local players that mainland schools can poach.
