Ø Throughout my life there have been two constants, family and sports. Below you will find out why and how they remain a big part of my life today:
§ There is nothing more important to me than my family; especially my son Grayson. He is a 4 year old who makes me smile and laugh even on the worst days. I am very lucky and thankful to have such a supportive and caring family.
§ If it was possible, I would golf every day of my life. I stand by the saying, “playing a bad round of golf beats not playing any day of the week.”
§ I am a volunteer assistant coach for the Schuylkill Haven High School Boys Soccer Team – (2008 – Present)
§ I participate on a men’s soccer team at Game Face Sports Complex in Reading, PA during the winter months.
§ I have played the game of baseball my entire life. I grew up with a glove on one hand and a ball in the other.
§ I continue to play ball by participating on a men’s fast-pitch softball team during the spring and summer months.
