He is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes as well as the Mighty Lion football and basketball teams.
My favorite part of teaching....the kids, of course! I love the “lightbulb” moments when something suddenly clicks and becomes clear to them. I also love keeping up with them as they grow up.
