PBR: Why did you choose Lake Erie?

Lind: Heidelberg and I had small interest in Thomas More (football)

PBR: Where did Lake Erie first see you? How did your relationship develop with their coaching staff?

Lind: I think Lake Erie first saw my video on PBR. After my visit to Lake Erie, talking to Coach McGee on a weekly basis best developed my relationship.
