I love the idea, it will definitely give an opportunity for our athletes, future athletes, and parents to see what the collegiate level is all about. There will be nothing better than a college tour!! Great job Coach!!

I think that's a great idea. I also think that would be able to open the minds of people who are not able to see beyond the Maryland or Baltimore region.
