VIDEO: Osiris Eldridge Reflects on Redbirds' Season
April 7, 2009
Want to know what your favorite Illinois State student-athletes are really thinking, both on-and-off the court? How about what is their favorite thing to do in their spare time, or who is their funniest teammate or what is on their mind as they go through a practice or game? Well, look no further, as GoRedbirds.com and Redbird All-Access have you covered with a new video feature series that will give Redbird student-athletes a chance to talk and speak their minds on a weekly basis.
Up this week is junior guard Osiris Eldridge of the Illinois State men's basketball team.
Much has already been said and written about Osiris Eldridge's star-studded career at Illinois State. Just this past season alone, he was named the Missouri Valley Conference Preseason Player of the Year, a first-team National Basketball Coaches Association Division I District 16 honoree, earned his second-straight All-MVC First-Team accolade and was named the State Farm MVC Tournament Most Outstanding Player. And that was just a small compilation of honors and awards that have been bestowed upon him during his three-year Redbird basketball career.
Already regarded as one of the greatest men's basketball players in Illinois State history, Eldridge now finds himself in the enviable position of deciding whether he wants to enter the NBA Draft or stay in Normal, Ill., for one more season of Redbird basketball. While that decision is still being drafted, there is one thing for certain, when O throws down a dunk at Redbird Arena, there is no question that he is, and always will be, a fan-favorite at Illinois State.
