What's on your mind?

Who was the first head coach to offer you a job after you came out? Also, what’s your overall record versus this head coach? (If you’ve played against them).

Hey!
The first head coach to hire me was my good friend Rob Burke. Coach Burke and I worked together at Chowan University. Everyone needs a Coach Burke in their life, and he has done more for me than I can put into words. He hired me based on my merit and work ethic. Burke is just the type of guy who doesn’t allow you to quit and will always encourage you that you can figure it out, no matter what. My record vs. Burke is 3-1 overall. ;)

Together, always,
