After 20 plus hours of travel I finally arrived safely in Australia. Extremely tired but excited about the opportunity. I grabbed my bags and waited on my ride. Called the family to make sure they knew I was good while I waited. Once my ride arrived headed straight to the press conference. The grind has officially started. Once done I met the team, talked with the coaches, and got caught up to speed. Left the gym to check in my hotel and drop the bags off cause it’s time to get to work. Changed clothes grabbed my shoes and headed straight back to the gym. Did an individual workout for over an hour and then watch film with coach to learn plays and defensive schemes. Have less than 48 hours before game time and I definitely am going to do my part and be prepared…..no excuses. Once finished I did therapy and ice bath. Gotta take care of the body. Grabbed some food headed back to the Telly so I could unpack and get settled in. Crashed at 8 pm. Day one in the books
