Can't wait for Hoops season and also to see the reconstructed Burrow. Just
wondering what the latest on DeAndre Rice is. I know he had the workout with
the Heat. Any chance he'll be playing professionally somewhere next year?
It's a longshot for the NBA, but I believe he is good enough to play a
couple years either internationally or in one of the minor leagues here in
the States and then perhaps get another shot at the big time. Any news?
Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
DeAndre is doing great! I saw him just the other day playing with a group of players called the Sixth Man Club. Dre looked like he was in shape and has an awful lot of interest from teams in Europe. I don't want to jinx things but the second he signs his deal we will let everyone know where he is going.
Thanks for the email...the team is very excited to get back into the Burrow to start working out again. It is very difficult right now not having an office and place for the players to come see us, but we are excited about the possibilities! School starts on the 26th of August and we will waste no time getting back to work! The 12 Minute Run will be on the 27th and our first Individual Workout will be on the 31st of August.
