We were always goofing around, saying we were going to be these famous football players. But that’s where dreams begin. We see kids at our… Read more »

Just Someone’s Dad

Posted: April 8, 2014 by . Tagged

I hate it when people don’t try, when they take the easy route or slack off. It’s a pet peeve. Just ask the kids I’m coaching this year for the USBA / AAU League. In the interest of full disclosure, my 7th grade son is on the team. And coaching gives me the opportunity to… Read more »

Yet, just last week, the 37-year-old from Raleigh participated in the IRONMAN competition in Louisville, KY.  He also raised $5,000 for the Holt Brothers Foundation through his IRONMAN fundraising page.

Back in the Broadcast Booth

Posted: August 19, 2013 by . Tagged , ,

I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge. So that’s why I decided to tackle the broadcast booth. The first time was in 2010 – the Carolina Panthers vs. the Cleveland Browns. I was totally overwhelmed and swore I would never go back. These announcers make it look so easy. But you’ve got… Read more »
