The San Jose Black Hulls are based on my friend, Jose Palacios. I worked for him in the Center of the Arts for the majority of my graduate studies. Earlier this year, Jose and I developed an interest in disc golf and play frequently at the various courses in the area. It has become an activity to unwind from the stresses of our academic workloads as we near the end of our collegiate careers. Jose has become a trusted friend who provides a unique insight to art, music, sports, and life. Prior to being at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi served in the Coast Guard. Jose was stationed on a black hull ship for the duration of his service. These vessels aid in navigation and provide maintenance of the buoys and fleet. The number 8 is for his years of service in the Coast Guard.
