A snapshot of where it all began...

Athletic. Intelligent. Dynamic. Unselfish. Humble. A baller. A gentleman. A Hoya.

On this 2013 NBA Draft day, we thought it might be fun to do a little something festive for our Big East Player of the Year. The guy with the freshest mustache in the nation.

A group of Georgetown faculty, students, and alumni came together to code, design, and launch onlyatgeorgetown.com, a digital platform that curates Otto Porter user-generated content – yes that means all that creative goodness made by all of you. (Ahem, who says Hoyas aren't creative?)

Before you fix that hair, put on your Hoya SWAG, and rock out a shameless selfie, here are a few casual tips and guidelines…

1) Please use the #CongratsOtto hash-tag for all things digitally worthy of Otto.

2) Tweet, Vine, or Instagram your support and best wishes.

3) A CHALLENGE: We’re crowdsourcing a song for Otto. Yes. We need your sexy voice (and dance moves).

Vine yourself karaoke-ing a few lyrics of "#22" -- see below. We’ll be compiling the best clips at the end of the weekend to form a whole song. Yes, it will be better than Christmas morning. Yes, you can sing it at Tombs at 1:50AM. Yes, it will be more epic than "Red Wedding." Go get some honey and lemon. It's time to up your karaoke game.

Looking forward to watching Otto hopefully become the 2nd Hoya this year to be chosen to play at the professional level in basketball (congrats on making it to the WNBA Sugar!).

With Love and Ever So Casually,

The Project #CongratsOtto Team

P.S. Submit your #CongratsOtto pic / video + follow @selfie and you'll be eligible to win a pair of tickets to Otto's first game!

"#22"

[Verse 1]

It feels like a perfect night, to go juice some Oranges

And make a big corner three, and-one, and-one

It feels like a perfect night for Midnight Madness

To fall in love with old school game, OTTO, OTTO

[Bridge]

Yeaaaah

He’s lanky, quick, hits J’s, steals passes at the same time

His mustache is so magical, ohhh yeah

Big East Tourney, sink two from the free throw line, overtime, OTTO

[Hook]

I dunno about you, but I'm drafting 22

Everything will be alright with, this baller from Mizzou

Pair him with Kyrie or with J-Wall and Bradley B

Everything will be alright if, you just keep ballin’ with number 22… 22

[Verse 2]

Playing against the Scarlet Knights

Verizon is crowded

Haters be hatin’, OTTO, OTTO, (Who's Otto Porter anyway? No AAU?)

It seems like he is everywhere

Shot-block like Dikembe, reverse lay-in, dunking like Ewing

[Bridge]

Yeaaaah

He’s humble, smart, fills-up the stat sheet in a beastly way

His mustache is so magical, ohhhh yeah

Tonight’s the night, when another Hoya goes to the NBA, OTTO!

[Hook]

I dunno about you, but I'm drafting 22

Everything will be alright with, this baller from Mizzou

In the steps of Jeff Green, Monroe and Big Roy too

Everything will be alright if, you draft them from Big Man U… Big Man U

I’m drafting, 22, 22…

[Verse 3]

It feels like it's overtime

UConn game-winner

It feels like it's OTTO time

JT3 offense scheming

It feels like one of those nights

Mr. Otto-mattic. I’m drafting 22, I’m drafting 22

[Hook]

I dunno about you, but I'm drafting 22

Everything will be alright with, this baller from Mizzou

In the steps of AI, Othella, and Alonzo too

Everything will be alright if, you draft them from Georgetown U, Georgetown U

Big Man U, yeah, Big Man U, yeah yeah

[Verse 4]

It feels like it is draft night

What will the Wizards do?

It feels like it is draft night

We won't be sleeping

It feels like it is draft night

Mr. Otto-mattic, I’m drafting 22, I’m drafting 22

Hoya Saxa.

binge.
