Wow.....brings back great memories of a storied UC program and that '08 class
.........and so it begins...........
Nice video, I'm glad Battle was able to play his last year. He deserved it
Thanks DUB....it meant so much to him.
It may be due to your presence here but your son will always be one of my favorite Bearcats. Effort was never a question even with all of the times he could have given up.
Shaun, you could never be so right. He could have called it a "wrap" a long time ago but he proved to be an example of what could happen if you don't give up. I am so proud about how he handled the really bad times.
BattleCat, I too definitely enjoyed rooting for your son. He came on as a young player then suffered setback. It was great to see his return. I hope he enjoyed his time here at UC....and I am sure he has some great memories and learned a lot about himself and life. He was a big part of some great times here. Best of luck to him in whatever he does. And glad to have you guys as lifelong bearcat fans now.
And thanks to you for your enlightening posts and perspective ove the years. Don't be a stranger.
Eric has been a member of BCL for years and has always been a positive influence on the site. Dominique is a very polite, respectful, smart, modest young man (with great hair), which is a direct reflection of how he was raised.
I should also add that although Eric lived in Cincinnati as a kid, he raised Dominique in Florida but moved back to the Queen City after Dominique signed to play football at UC.
Thanks all....I'm in Cincinnati for the next couple years, so I'll still be a member and you'll see me at Bearcat football games. I WAS a Buckeye FAN for several years but I'm a BEARCAT for life.
I'll update from time to time what Nique's doing.
Was that pic from when your daughter signed to play college softball?
Makes sense that Mr. Battle is a Cincinnati guy. That explains why Dom is so tough and resilient.
Great news. Thanks for all that Dom has done for Bearcat FB. He's got toughness and tenacity for sure.
That 2008 recruiting class will be a real testament , and legacy to the resurgence of UC football !
Hope we get to say " I know that kid " When he walks out in his first appearance in an NFL uniform on our TV screens next fall !
Good luck to D. battle !
Sometimes you just need to clear your head!
You certainly couldn't fault him if he did hang it up. His perseverance will serve him well in life though.
$50 to join - We need YOU!
Yes it was
Saw the highlights....I ran out of syrup for all those pancakes!
All it takes is one NFL team to like him...of course your gonna have to supply all the syrup! I wonder how many from that class will make it to the next level?
Thank you Battlecat! Great highlight reel. I'll echo Tim, that you've been very enjoyable to read on this site.
Looking at these highlights, it's clear that Dominique is one of UC's best tackling DBs in recent memory. I think his ability to make such clean tackles in space was always under-appreciated by most.
YOU were a Columbus state fan?? Say it ain't so!!;)
I take it your son is working out for the nfl? Let us know how it goes. What's his degree in?
Why are we told to not judge Islam by the actions of a few extremists, but judge all gun owners by the actions of a few killers?
He's working out and will be at pro day on the 13th of March. His major was communications.
