As Kelsey mentioned, in November I decided that I wanted to transfer schools. There were a couple of events that led me to this decision.
- We were heading into our last semester of community college and would have to transfer after our sophomore year anyway. I had started to think ahead about where I wanted to go. I knew I wanted to go to the same place as Kels so I asked her where she thought she was headed after NIACC and she said Simpson College.
- I remembered that Simpson had recruited me to play football when I was in high school. I got to thinking that I might want to play again. I contacted the coach to see what he thought about me joining the team in the fall. Simpson is a Division III school, so there are no scholarships available and pretty much anybody can join the team. But the coach encouraged me to transfer down there mid-year so I could participate in off-season workouts with the team. This made sense to me, and I was pretty out of shape at the time.
