The part of the article that caught my attention the "mafia" aspect of the organization. Although the notion of a mafia may connote illegal practices and business, everyone looks out for each other's back when in the mafia. I believe that through the HCGLC, a "mafia" can and will develop amongst the alumni and trickle down into the current players in the program.

I came across an article this morning by Curtis Eichelberger, who writes for Bloomberg.com, about the fabulous alumni network the University of Pennsylvania football program has with the current players. The dedication Quaker alumni have to their current football players is something I believe that the Holy Cross Gridiron Leadership Council has emulated. The "90-Wide" Mentoring Program has been a great success thus far, and my personal mentor, Lee Heffernan, has provided me with worthwhile career advice and strategies that I would not have otherwise gained. As great as the Career Planning is at Holy Cross, I have found the mentoring program to be an invaluable outlet as I near the "real world" after college.
