Who is someone you admire and why?
Tom Brady. He was drafted late in the 6th round of the NFL draft and was given very little chance to make it in the NFL. He used that as motivation and worked tirelessly to get better. When he finally got his chance to play, he made the most of it. Once he was inserted as the starter, the Patriots became the winningest team in football for the 20 years he has been there.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A professional baseball player. After playing all thru high school and captaining the team as a Senior, I was hoping to continue playing in college – but the ability to play was not the priority – the school was. After choosing to go to Lafayette College I met with the baseball coach who said that he would give me the opportunity to try out, which I did, and made the team. My freshman year I was a walk on for an injured player. After that I played all four years and was first team all East Coast Conference my senior year.
What would be your personal motto?
Work hard and never give up. Refuse to lose.
