Thank You All!!

After suffering a concussion in practice on October 19, 2000, Jamie Carey also suffered serious post-concussive symptoms that dated back to severe concussions she suffered in junior high and high school. After consultations with a number of doctors, Jamie agreed to end her collegiate career. Jamie was the 1999-2000 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. We will all miss #11.

I received all of your comments yesterday after practice, and I just wanted to thank everyone for your kind words and for all of your support! I can't tell you how hard this has been, but everyone is helping me get through this. You guys are the greatest fans ever, and very loyal... that was proved by the standing O I received at the exhibition game, and I really appreciate it tremendously... as does our entire team! We are looking forward to a great year! Once again thank you for all your support... and never forget...GO CARD!! 

behind us are memories
beside us are friends
before us are dreams that will NEVER end!

Dear Stanford Fans-

As Jamie's Mom, I would just like to thank each and every one of you who came out to support the Texas Longhorns during the West Regionals this past weekend!! It was a very emotional weekend for many reasons but one I know Jamie (and I) will always remember. You made her return to Maples a very pleasant experience. I read in the paper where she said---something to the effect-- this kind of reception wouldn't have happened at very many Universities across the US. I couldn't agree more. I wish I had the proper words to express what I felt as I saw the many signs you made, the #11 jerseys being worn, the fans cheering, the support of the coaches and players, the standing "O" during the player introductions and all your kind words about Jamie. Please know although Jamie and I are now Texas Longhorns through and through---there will always be a very special place reserved for Stanford in each of our hearts. Thank you from the two of us and the entire Texas Longhorn family!!! Your support was "priceless" and it did "Carey" us to Atlanta!! THANK YOU!!!!
