Commentary:

Growing up with 7 brothers and sisters, we were taught at an early age that to survive in life you needed to be competitive. And, that was just at the dinner table lol. But eventually that spilled out into the athletic world as well. My years in sports taught me the value of working together with a team towards a common goal. My coaches at Marshall were awesome and great mentors and I will forever be grateful for everything they taught me.
