Institutional Service and Responsibilities

Too recruit student track and field and cross country athletes to our school in the sport of track and field and cross country and to help them grow academically, athletically, and professionally.  

Personal Interests

I would like my student athletes to know how much I care about each one of them and it is very rewarding to see them succeed in the classroom, on the track, and on the x country trails. But the most rewarding of all is to see them walk across the stage at graduation.
