This is too cute.
When you come to UVa you don’t join a team, you become part of a family. We don’t just say it, we live it every single day. And everyone in the family does their part and works hard (including the Hagans boys on bed check duty). The standard is the standard for everyone ! ⚔️ pic.twitter.com/U3sr4YCMEt— Marques Hagans (@coachmhagans) August 20, 2019
