February 19, 2016 Bruin Brotherhood In the professional athletic environment, the team-as-family metaphor is not uncommon. You hear it all the time in interviews and read it in sportswriters’ columns. Players speak of their teammates as “brothers” and “sisters,” and locker rooms and athletic facilities as a second home. A coach is an obvious paternal or maternal figure. It’s part of the ethos of team sports: all for one, one for all. So much more for student-athletes. At a private university like George Fox, with a limited enrollment and small campus, student already feel at home and comfortable forming relationships. Student-athletes claim another membership within that campus family. The team. The Bruins.
