I was a four-sport athlete at Liberty High School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, competing in football, basketball, lacrosse as well as track and field. After high school, I atteneded Temple University, a Division I school in Philadelpahia. I chose Temple due to the fact it was an urban campus close to home with an elite sports mangment program. From there, I took a position with IMG Academy in Bradenton, Flordia, working for former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Chris Weinke. I trained the NFL combine class, including 60 now NFL players as well as helped build the IMG Acadmey program into the national powerhouse it is today.
As enjoyable as my time at IMG Academy was, I realized my purpose in life was helping student-athltes on a much larger scale get a college education by the means of playing football. My purpose in life fits perfectly with NCSA. This is easily my favorite thing about working for NCSA.
