Third Time’s a Charm!


I’m back in Poland…again! Before starting my professional career, I never thought I would play in Poland for a season, and here I am for the third time, playing for my third different team. Although I didn’t foresee a return to Poland, it was a very easy decision for me this off-season to accept the offer to play in Słupsk. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be chasing a Polish title with a club that has been fighting at the top of the league since I can remember.

My first season in Poland was my first time experiencing the post-season in my professional career. We were very fortunate to finish in the top 4 of the league. When I returned to Poland for the second time, my team fell short of the championship, losing in the finals in 6 games. This season of course is my third try, and we all know the saying, “third time’s a charm!” I’m hoping this proves to be true, as I have my sights set on helping to bring a championship to Słupsk!! There’s no question that everyone has these high hopes at the beginning of every season, and of course there is a lot of work to be done between now and then. However, I’m sure that we have the team and fan support to have a very strong chance to realize this dream.

Thanks to everyone involved in giving me this opportunity! I can’t wait to represent this team and this city and fight for a championship!
