Terrence Kelly Should Be Honored On Senior Day

Dear Pat Kilkenny, I know, you've only been around for a few months. The baseball team's taking a little bit of your time even though they aren't playing games. The basketball arena alone has gotta take up another what, 75 hours a week Maybe more And then there's the football team, the women's soccer team, volleyball, and on and on. I sent an email to your predecessor about a year and a half ago asking for him to consider this. He replied and said he thought it was worth talking about, and then he left. It's a simple request. It's almost six weeks until the day of the event. I hope you'll consider it. At the end of this season the Ducks are going to step out onto the Autzen turf to play against the Beavers. Big game, possible bowl implications for both teams, the rivalry, the home winning streak, it'll all be on the line. But it'll also be senior day. The day everyone stands and applauds the David Faaeteete, Andiel Brown, Geoff Schwartz, Dennis Dixon, Paysinger, So'oalo, Harper, and the Eric Steimer's of the world. All guys who are deserving of an ovation for the effort and sacrifice they've made for the program. If it's not too much to ask, please add one more player. Terrence Kelly. He made his commitment to Oregon and I think the Duck fans would like to show their respect to him and his family at the appropriate time. His loss had a huge impact on the community of Richmond. If you haven't seen it, here's a short film of people in Richmond talking about what his loss meant to the community. While I know it didn't have the same deep impact on the Oregon community, among the Duck faithful, nobody's forgotten Terrence. For years now I've received notes, thoughts, and regrets about TK in every form you can imagine. I may not speak for all of them, but I think I speak for most of them when I ask for the chance to applaud him just once. Thanks
