The Bulldog Club is made up of many friends who are passionate about Drake Athletics and are committed to the success of our nearly 400 student-athletes across 18 sports at Drake University. Gifts made to the Bulldog Club contribute significantly to financing the Drake student-athlete experience and address the most immediate needs of our teams and student-athletes, whether it be travel, facilities maintenance, equipment, medical support, or recruiting.
In 2004 I had the fortune of coming to Drake University to play for Coach Holmes and the Drake Men’s soccer team. It was a life changing experience for me. The rigors of an 18 game season taught me discipline. Tearing both hamstrings my sophomore season taught me perseverance (and that I need to stretch more often). The sacrifice of those who came before taught me leadership.
Being involved with the Bulldog Club, I’ve had the opportunity to hear about current Student athletes like Liza Heap and Steven Jordan. Liza is triple majoring in Psychology, Neuroscience and Biology so she can one day find a cure for autism, while working on her jump shot for the women’s basketball team. Steven is maintaining a 4.0 in Pharmacy and tutoring other athletes in chemistry while transforming himself from an 800-meter runner into a 200-meter sprinter.
I give to the Bulldog Club because I want Liza, Steven and all the current and future Drake Student athletes to have the same life changing experience I benefited from.
Please join me in this goal.
