ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – This afternoon the Radford Highlanders Coaches Caravan made it’s way to the Roanoke Country Club. WFXR Sports Ryan Moye got the chance to catch up with men’s basketball coach Darris Nichols as he got the opportunity to meet and greet the Roanoke community.
“It’s special because Radford being a small community but then when you get out in the state Virginia and surrounding areas you realize how important Radford University is to a lot of people. I just think being the head coach at Radford University access is going to be a big thing. We’re a small community and we want the people to support the program and people who are interested in the program to feel apart of it,” says Nichols.
The caravan will continue it’s tour throughout the commonwealth. Next they’ll head to Richmond and will make their way back to the Dedmon Center in Radford later in the fall.
