What a great honor it is to be inducted to the PIL Hall of Fame. This accomplishment draws me back to a little boy with my dad at all PIL games. He would tell me about all the good players. I knew then I wanted one day to be one of those good players. I want thank my brother and my mom for constantly supporting me.
