Sgt. Andrew Clary opens the door to his office wearing a 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four shirt. He sits at a desk covered in badges and coins collected from all the places he has traveled. On his wall hangs a signed Joe Montana picture, and lying next to it is his Syracuse basketball backpack.

Clary is in charge of special events for the Department of Public Safety at Syracuse University, which, among other things, makes him the traveling security guard for the men’s basketball team. More specifically, he is the security guard for Coach Jim Boeheim.
