In the near future you'll be seeing a new feature here at TDG. I haven't nailed down the name yet, something like "Better Know a Gopher" or "Profiles in Gopher Excellence" or something along those lines. Essentially we are going to profile Gopher athletes, hopefully the best of Gopher athletes. All too often the athletes that dominate the headlines are those who grab the negative headlines. Royce White, Kevin Whaley, etc. But what gets lost is that there are hundreds of athletes who are excellent students, successful athletes and great kids who are setting themselves up to be outstanding contributors to society. Interview #1 is on tape and hopefully I'll get the time to get this out as soon as possible. The hope is that this will be a continual series highlighting kids across all the sports highlighting the best of Gopher athletics.
