I graduated from the University of Mobile (AL) in 1993 with a degree in physical education and a minor in history. I was a competitive distance runner in college, earning NAIA All-District and All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference honors in cross country and leading my team to three NAIA National Championship Meets. I also worked hard during the summers to earn my graduate and doctoral degrees in sport management from the United States Sports Academy in 1999 and 2005, respectively, after college while I was coaching at the college level.
I am married to the smartest, most beautiful person I have ever met, Candy, and we are coming up on our 19th anniversary in September. We call Lakeway, Texas, home but do a ton of traveling around the US. I also serve as an adjunct online professor in sport management for six colleges and universities across the country. I stay busy!
