‘I’m most looking forward to meeting the kids and people who are just as excited about youth sports as I am now. My biggest regret is I never played sports growing up. It teaches you a lot; you learn how to give credit to other people, build confidence, and how to handle criticism. If I could go back and do one thing, I would play a sport.’
‘My mom and dad are an absolute blessing in my life. They are my biggest fans, my strongest supporters, and my fiercest allies. They worked extremely hard to get me through college, and after that, the most trying times in my adult life. They’ve kept me grounded while giving me confidence to follow my dreams.’
