    How my Fred Man Crush Started..

    I just wanted to share a little story I have about Fred from when I was a little kid. I met Fred when i was probably 8 and I think it was on that senior tour the players used to do. I was so pumped got his autograph and talked to him a little bit. We had one of those superman conversations..went something like this... "YOU'RE AWESOME"- me "Thanks kid, keep working on that jump shot!" *rubs head* - Fred Hoiberg...About a year later Fred came back for a basketball camp in Ames, NATURALLY I go. For some reason I thought I was very memorable, so when Fred came over to my group. I said hey you remember me? Corey from Carroll! and proudly showed him my autograph he gave me on my shirt. He CLAIMED he remembered me and asked me how I was doing, I was so pumped. Well end of the camp comes around and we are having a hot shot competition, Fred is demonstrating how the competition should go and needs a demonstrator, He looks around the WHOLE crowd and says "Hey Corey, Why don't you come out here and demonstrate for me!" When this happened I instantly ..ok not really but I was shell shocked, I dont think i made a shot the whole demonstration. Afterwards Fred gave me another T-shirt and autograph and thanked me for my demonstration. And so my Man Crush Started....

    Cool story though. I'm glad that these are the types of people that are in charge of our sports teams now. It really makes you feel like you are part of everything.

    So Fred intentionally embarrased you in front of a large group of people at a young age? You must have been traumatized!
