While you think, enjoy this poem dedicated to David Horst. It is written in iambic tetrameter (a meter used by Lord Byron)

Ode to a Center Back

Our David Horst will take the field
And broken runs his strength will yield
With slides that make a strong man weep
and earn a nod from our goal keep

His headers rarely can be matched
Long legs that simply can't be catch'd
And when his victim makes a dive
"Get UP!" He yells, his eyes alight

Although a red may find him 'gain
For fire of passion, wrath, and vim
we ne'er will steer a truer course
Than when we play our David Horst
