Warmup shirts to honor Joe Crowley

Nevada will wear special warmup shirts tonight in remembrance of former University of Nevada president Dr. Joe Crowley. 

Dr. Crowley served as the University of Nevada, Reno president for a record-setting 23 years, from 1978 to 2001. When Crowley stepped down from the University presidency, he was the longest-serving president at a single institution among the nation's principal universities. His 23 years as president mark the longest single tenure of any of Nevada's chief executives.

He retired, formally, in January 2003, but then served for a year (2003-04) as interim president of San Jose State University. Afterward, he returned to Nevada to teach on a part-time basis. He served as interim president from December 2005 to June 2006. Crowley joined the University's political science faculty in January 1966.

Charlie,

Being a walk-on at the college level isn’t easy…  There is a certain level of mental and physical toughness that you need to have to come to practice day in and day out, compete with scholarship players, knowing, you may only get a few minutes when it is game day. It takes a special person with a special mindset. The confidence, work ethic, and willingness to sacrifice for the team that you exemplify on a consistent basis are core values in every good walk-on.

Since you stepped on campus, the one thing that has stood out to our staff is your blue-collar work ethic. Often times, you are the first one in the gym or last one out for practice or get shots up after hours. Not only were you in the gym, you also brought teammates along. That is the true sign of a leader. You let the work speak for itself and you brought others along with you.

See the thing is Charlie… Our staff and players never saw you as a ‘walk-on’. You had some of the best practice habits on the team. You came to practice with a team-first mentality. You provided great chemistry with the players. Thank you for making us all better each day.

That is why, Charlie, we are awarding you with a Full Athletic Scholarship for the Spring 2018 semester.  This is not something we are giving you...  You have earned this moment. Enjoy it!
