This is a great interview. As I was at UVa during the “lost generation”, all these dudes are the ones I followed and I’m loving the interviews with these guys. Living in Lambeth Field my second year… I don’t believe I missed a game as I just stumbled over to UHall after class to the student section.
Funny story about Devin playing in Italy near Naples… it made me think of the following story. As I’m an IT sales guy in Germany, I travel to the Naples area a few times a year to call on the US Naval Air Station at Capodichino and the NATO Joint Forces Command at Lago Patria. I was sitting at one of my favorite restaurants on the water about 6 or 7 years ago and this guy walks up and asked if we were American as we were all speaking English…
He ends up sitting down with us telling us he was a US basketball player playing for Capo Miseno locally and liked to come down to eat. Said he would just walk around and find a group speaking English as it helped him not get home sick while in Italy. I wish it had been Devin as I would’ve actually recognized him… probably would’ve blown his mind. LOL!
Great dude… I still keep in touch with him over Facebook.
