My athletic inspiration came from my late brother, John. He encouraged me to work hard and have fun - it's a lesson I still live by today. I am immensely grateful for his support and very honored to be inducted in the same year as John.

My coaches, including Ernie Holman and Cliff Woods, were like father figures to me and were generous with their time and support. I was also fortunate to have talented teammates including David Flint and Everett Jack. Thanks to my friends and family for making my highschool sports career one that I will cherish forever.
