As I mentioned earlier I’ll be doing a story soon here on Ellen Tripp, interim director for UConn’s academic counseling program working with womens basketball, football the last 11 years and since January, mens basketball.
Word is, she’s outstanding at what she does. Word from those she’s worked with is that she’s outstanding, more to the point she’s tough, doesn’t take any mess, but she’s very caring and fair.
Here’s what former UConn tight end and 2013 draft hopeful Ryan Griffin said about Tripp today.
“Ellen has been a mainstay of guidance for the entire football team, not only from an academic standpoint but she has also served as a life resource for many of us and for that all of us are grateful for her to be a key stone in the foundation that is the UConn football family,” Griff said.
