“It’s just ironic, you know I started off in that midweek starter role like halfway through my freshman year. Coach Mainieri called me into his office and he said, ‘hey man I think the long term plan is still to develop you as a starter, but we’re going to need you at the back end of games now with some of these guys that have gone down,’ and that was really the first introduction I had into relief,” continued Hess.
