High school athletics taught me a way of life that has always stayed with me. Team work, relationship skills, dealing with adversity, prepared me for leadership roles in life, career, and my personal life. Everything we do in life involves others and I have always striven to do my part to the best of my ability. I will always be thankful to my coaches Roy Love, Jack Dunn, and Art Verment, who pushed me to play hard but play fair both on and off the field.
