The sport of wrestling has been an incredible vehicle that has taken me to places I could have only dreamed of going. The sport of wrestling has also created some of the greatest relationships a man could ever desire to have. While the sport of wrestling taught me how to lose, ultimately it also taught me how to win. Humility, dedication and discipline are only a few of the many thousand's of gifts the sport provided that I am so thankful to have acquired. The sport of wrestling is a tool in God's hands used to shape my character and through the sport of wrestling I have been blessed to become the man that I am today.

The husband of a beautiful woman named Olivia McPherson, father of 6 lovely children and 5 awesome grand children. I'm also proud to say my father (Donnie McPherson) also a PIL Hall Of Fame Member. He has been the single most influential person in my life. He poured into me and made me believe that there is absolutely nothing that I can not achieve if only I believe! To him I am so thankful.
