May 25, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 31MPs defend title with new squad Story and photo by Walt Johnson Mountaineer staff “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.” This oldShakespeare saying may be all too real for the 759th MilitaryPolice Battalion as it defends its post softball title this season. Every team is eager to prove it is as good as the champions.It might be fairer to call the police unit the defendingchampion, rather than reigning champions, since only twoplayers return from last year’s squad. One of the players is team captain Milton Santiago,who has the unenviable task of deciding how thisteam will go about defending the title. Christopher Davisis the other returning player. Santiago said the team will not use the roster turnoveras an excuse or a crutch as it begins defense of its title. “We are now figuring out what we have to do to be in aposition to win a championship this year,” he said. “Most ofthese guys are playing for the opportunity to win their firstchampionship and I think that’s a little more difficult thanwhat we had to do (last year). This team has a little moreweight on its shoulders because (the players) want to dowhat we did last year. “We have started out the year playing very good softball. It’searly in the season, but I honestly believe we may have moretalent this year than we had last year. For that reason, I hope thatwe will see a second championship this year,” said Santiago. He said last year’s team was all about hitting and thisyear is about a total team concept. This year’s team hasthe talent to depend on all phases of the game and notcount on individual “brilliance” to achieve success, Santiagosaid. The team is working on the three concepts: playinggood offense, good defense and being good teammates. “We also know that every team has its individual quirksand we are learning to understand what this team can andcannot do as we play the season. We have a lot of raw talentand (what) we want to do is make sure that we keep thedrive and dedication that we have right now,” Santiago said. He said the police team has a lot of young talent whogive their all for each game and every team member willget an opportunity to excel. Santiago said one of the bestthings about this team is it has an attitude that “what isbest for the team is what is best for me.” “Our biggest challenge this year is going to be havingmore players that can play than I have the time to play them.I have to figure out a way to keep everybody fresh and readyto go. There are a lot of great players and great teams outthere and there is no way I would say we are the 100 percentbest team on post. But I will say this, if anyone wants totake the title away from us they’re going to have to fight Christopher Davis talks to his 759th Military Police Battalion team prior to a game at the Mountain Postvery hard in order to get it,” Santiago said.

34 MOUNTAINEER — May 25, 2012Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Adam Frame Intramural softball player Adam Frame played most major sports as a child and continued playing sports after being assigned to Fort Carson three years ago and even while serving the nation during a tour in Iraq. What is your favorite professional sports moment? (It was) in April when the Washington Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III to play quarterback. The Redskins definitely need a quarterback and he is definitely going to be a good player. What is your favorite personal sports moment? It’s always great to get that game-winning hit or make that amazing play, but playing with my unit is my favorite sports moment. I love the camaraderie we have here. It’s a lot different than any team I have played on because of the other aspects we (share) since we work together. What is the one thing in sports you haven’t done yet that you would still like to do? I would like to play Division I football. I played Division III and I was pretty good, but I would’ve loved to gone to Virginia Tech and play football. If you could meet any athlete who would it be? Michael Vick because he played ball at Virginia Tech, got drafted No. 1 overall and then had the unfortunate event of the dogfighting (incident). He has been able to come back after spending two years in jail and still plays very well. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that … I am an all-purpose sports player. I’m a bigger guy and there are people that don’t know that I can hang, no matter what sport it is. I can play any sport well because I do it for the love of the game.
