Last season, Flagler College Saints Men’s basketball player Matt Clark expected that he wouldn’t get much playing time since he was a freshman.

“I initially felt that I was going to be the 6th or 7th man and come off the bench and be a three point threat,” Clark said.

Men’s basketball head coach Bo Clark was recognized for his exceptional leadership at the “Honoring the Legends” banquet held in the Ponce De Leon Dining Hall.

Flagler College honored Clark along with baseball coach Dave Barnett and tennis coach Walter Shinn for 25 or more years of coaching. The banquet featured a social, silent auction and dinner which was held the day before, but in union with the Flagler College President’s Golf Classic.

Walking through the doors of the Flagler College gymnasium is Ryan Vander Wielen’s favorite part about his job.

He likes not having to live the corporate life stuck in a suit and tie, and enjoys getting to wear a t-shirt and basketball shorts to work.

With aspirations to become a head basketball coach at the college level, Vander Wielen is currently the director of basketball operations for both the men’s and women’s teams at Flagler College. He receives a small stipend for his position on the women’s team, but nothing for the men’s.
