2015 in the Chinese culture was stamped as the year of the Goat. For UGR 2015 was the year of the commando traveler. Being blessed to work for Blue Grey Football has allowed us to hit 19 states, 14,765.5 total (11,543.3 driving miles 3,222.2 flying miles), 4 of the 9 standard time zones, 7 combines, 3 super combines, 1 bowl game in 7 months. WHEW! That’s a lot of ground to cover and it was worth every second we spent on the road. In this series we will be sharing those trips so you can see what we’re doing when we’re not calling coaches. First up, Tampa Combine and Blue Grey All American Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
