Commentary:

While growing up sports just came natural. I had so many athletes in my family that I wanted to emulate what I was seeing. My inspiration has always been my family. We played all day whether it be basketball, football or just simply racing down the block. Sports was an awesome outlet that taught me to be a leader, humility, team play and to respect others. I am proud to join many family members and great friends and competitors in the Hall.
