Britton The Team Player

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Most people think of professional tennis as an individual sport.  There is Davis Cup, which pits one country versus another in a team atmosphere and then there is World Team Tennis.  It features some of the biggest names in the world playing together in an innovative co-ed team format that offers exciting opportunities for players, fans, communities and sponsors.

Former Rebel Devin Britton is experiencing WTT for the first time this year as a member of the Springfield Lasers, one of eight teams in the pro league.  The Springfield Lasers are one of four teams in the Western Conference. 

Unlike most tennis professionals, Britton has some experience playing on a team.  In 2009, he was a member of the Ole Miss men's tennis team, helping lead the Rebels to an SEC Championship as well as the NCAA Elite Eight. 

Last night, the Mississippi native helped lead the Lasers to a win against the Kansas City Explorers, sending numerous fans home with souvenir tennis balls.  Here is a recap from the Springfield News-Leader

    Strange things happen to Ole Miss football teams in games played on Halloween. I don't know if I can bear to watch this one or not.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
