BCM Insider: Meet the Player
It's been a while since the team at BCMI did a meet the player edition, and to celebrate the birth of his child today. We decided to reach out to Pietro via the internet for some questions. But first, WHO is Pietro Rushing?
Pietro Alexander Rushing was most notably a standout as three sport varsity player in High School, and by the end of his Senior year he had decisions to make; he could play Second Base in Baseball at almost any school of his choice, Quarterback at some schools; his local school, the Michigan Wolverines offered him a scholarship, but the competition was thick and Pietro was less apt to concussions then draining threes. When it was all said and done, he turned down the college offers to play Basketball for the Wolverines and signed with the Midguards in Season 21.
Capable of playing anywhere on the Wing, Rushing's true impact comes from his seasons of tutoring of former Captain and current Coach of the WAR-Wolves, C.J. Cabungcal. His defensive game has improved under careful tweaking to go along with his stellar shot. His 92% career free throw mark and 49% Field Goal percentage are what keep Coach Vincent Wood delighted with the 22 year old.
BCM: Congrats on your child Mr. Rushing!
PR: Thank you! I'm overjoyed! You can call me Piet by the way. 😁 Travis James Rushing is gonna be a star in this league in about 18 years!!!😂🤣
BCM: Already thinking ahead? Haha. I dig it. I'm sure under your training he could be a star.
PR: I'm honestly not going to force him down any path one way or the other. If he shows interest in Science for example that's the field I'll help cultivate. Sorry if that'scheesy, but after today everything just feels so different.
BCM: As a parent myself I can agree to that. It only gets better, and worse at times, but better. You missed tonight's Regional elimination game to go be at the birth of your child. We heard theres a funny story about that if you want to share?
I was originally scheduled in the lineup before she we but into labor and my wife promised me it was okay to play because the labor would last hours and well- shes a baller too, she understood. I was ready to stay at the facility but Coach V.W. brought a Driver over and tickets back to Buenos Aires and said "Go be with your family. Your truly important family. Your brothers will be fine." Hearing the word family just made something inside me tick. I just nodded and made my way out...I'm guessing the driver messaged y'all 😂🤣
BCM: We'll never reveal our sources! 😂😉😅
Your teams success in PL4 has been unreal this year, still alive in both Cup and Regional and you're cruising through League with only one loss and no clear competition for the title. PL5 is back in sight, are you guys ready to stay?
BCM: Triple Crown?
PR: Triple Crown. It's no secret that was C.J.'s goal for us the day he left. He gathered the whole locker room, there was a big speech. The most amount of men crying in a single room since the ending of Marley and Me. 😂
BCM: Carlos is now Coaching former union member the Wolves and seeing some success early on. Are you upset he turned down the Assistant job here?
PR: Heck no! Warboys get paid. Coach V.W. never offered him the job officially. There was talks and then after Wood had outside talks with the owner of the Wolves they had decided C.J. had the playing experience and learning experience to step into the role as Coach successfully. We train with the Wolves weekly at the W.A.R. Facility, as well as all members of the Union. They are savages, C.J. is a savage, it's a good fit, trust me.
BCM: I agree.
Good luck with your future as a player and a parent, Piet, and thank you so much for your time to answer these questions, we will let you get back to future Hall of Famer, Travis James Rushing. Congrats. Gods Bless
PR: Thank you. Take care. Oh, I just got a text from Coll and he says do him next.
BCM: Coll Dalton?
PR: Yep. Want me to message you his details?
BCM: Yes please! Tell him we'll contact him to set something up shortly! thank you! 😊
PR: Hakuna Matata. Ciao guys. Use a charming picture please 🤣
