About Me

From an early age I have been intensely interested in all things that involve competition and sports.  Love for football, basketball, and baseball were unavoidable as I was a teacher and coaches son.  I was blessed to have played three years of college basketball and a year of baseball in college.  Many lessons were learned on the courts and fields of my youth.

Perhaps even more important was the love to learn instilled by my parents.  I am a voracious reader that leans toward biographies and histories and factual portrayals.

Presently I am actively engaged at my church as a Sunday school teacher.

I am happily married for over 20 years and blessed by 6 children.
