Being voted into the GHS Hall of Fame: “It meant a lot because of all that I put into Goddard. Goddard is pretty special to me. I wasn’t the biggest, strongest or fastest and I was smart enough to know that I wasn’t a pro prospect. I put everything I had into Goddard baseball. I’m very thankful to be in the Hall.”

Dad: “My dad trained me, we were very, very close. I loved everything we did together from lifting and he wanted to win. He was intense and knew what he was talking about. I appreciated everything he did for me. The best thing he did for me was get me started on weightlifting my freshman year. We worked out for two and a half years together.”
