"I had that jersey from years ago," Pimm says. "We try to use our social media, especially facebook and twitter, for information sharing and staying close to the community. We're people too."
After graduating with a degree in criminal justice, Pimm settled down with his fellow Wildcat wife and went through the Upper Dublin Police Academy, where he is now an officer.
After the Wildcats defeated UNC Monday night with a jaw-dropping buzzer beater in the NCAA final, Officer Pimm and all of Nova Nation had reason to celebrate.
