Hometown – Eagle point, Or
About me – I'm a fan of most sports but only passionate about two. Of course, football and the other is wrestling. I played corner and safety on def. and reciever on off. I wasn't very big back then but I was really fast which came in handy for special teams. I was bullett on kick off. I also wrestled under the infamous coach Bob Bergen of Eagle Point high school. We took the state championship all four years of high school.
Being involved in sports as a youth myself, I came to a point in my life where I really missed doing those things. I have a son who wanted to be involved also, which opened the door for me to get involved again. The one thing I believe that drives me to coach the most is that I love to see kids evolve into athletes and also just to be a mentor for those kids who's fathers or other family members are'nt involved or simply can't be because of work. That hits home with me because I was one of those kids. I was involved in sports from elementary school (little league) to high school and for all of those years I spent involved in sports, my father or any other family member for that matter only made it to one game. The thing is is that that one game meant the world to me and if he only came once I felt like that was of any other time in my life, my time to shine! Knowing that about myself, I try to do as much as I possibly can to maybe give that one kid who maybe does'nt know a father that same feeling and support. I believe this is my #1 reason above all else for giving my time and dedication to these kids!
