Whats up Frenji Family? SK is back in action officially!!! Sean Kilpatrick officially returned to the basketball court this past weekend with his Bearcat teammates on a 4day trip to Ottawa, Canada. SK leadf the Bearcats to a 3-0 record in exhbition games as well as lead the team in scoring at 14.5ppg. He also grabbed 4.5rpg while playing 25mpg. Here’s a quote from SK this past Monday: “Trip to Canada was fantastic, definatelly a life time experience for me because it was my first time out the country. We had to switch planes in Toronto Canada just to get to Ottawa Canada. The first thing we recieved as soon as we got into the airport in northern Kentucky was canadian money and there money is 10 times different from compared to USA money. This trip was great. After every win we went and celebrated and even though we beat there teams, the canadians loved us. When we went out they would ask me for autographs and pictures like they already knew me before I got out there and that’s something to remember. I will never forget Ottawa at all because that was a place that made me realize that you can not take life for granted because there is so much in store for u. Also to keep trying and keep your dreams and goals high for whatever you do because the sky is the limit. I want to thank my mother and my father for puting me on the face of this earth and who always kept me level headed and made sure that I was always ok, and I want to especially thank coach Tom Sampogna and coach Benji Carter for helping me also becoming a better person and player. This trip was great.” SK will be checking with us on this diary weekly to let us know how things are going.
10/12/10 Whats up Frenji Fam! This is SK…just getting ready for our 1st practice of the year. Been working real hard, doing extra running at night in the track and hitting the weights hard too. Just finished our autograph session with Coach Cronin for our pep rally. Also finished an interview with SNY and SLAM Magazine last week. Below is the beginning of my sny.tv article:
Sean Kilpatrick and his Cincinnati teammates were signing autographs Tuesday in Cincinnati’s Fountain Square when two fans in their 30s told Kilpatrick, “We can’t wait until we see you play.”
Kilpatrick can’t wait, either.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound White Plains, N.Y. native sat out all of last year as a redshirt and is anxiously awaiting the start of practice Friday. Cincinnati opens its season Nov. 15 against Mount St. Mary’s.
