I'm from Baton Rouge from the Seigan/ Perkins area. I went to high School at University High and played football , basketball , and threw shot and discus. I was recruited to play football by most of the small schools in LA, and a couple others, but choose to become an invited walk-on player at LSU. I attended LSU and briefly joined the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, and although I enjoyed the experience it didn't work out with my grades. I got serious about my grades and training, earned a scholarship at Center, maximized my potential athletically and started 4 games my Junior year. I sustained a fracture of my Tibia and Fibula against Georgia after competing, training, and practicing for 3 years just to earn my place on the field. This experience made me train/rehab even harder, so that I could start again my Senior Year. My plans unfolded perfectly. I was bigger, faster, and stronger than ever, and I was playing well, dominating. I was living my dream. A severe concussion about the 5th week of the season changed my life forever, and brought me back to Earth. Thank God for Jack Marruci, Andy Roberts, and Shelly Mullineaux, our football training staff. They helped put me back together and I played some more games in substitutional situations. I graduated the next Spring in Kinesiology and started looking for jobs. I thought I was ready to make some money, but I tried just about everything people will pay you to do. I was reminded by God that my life as a youth was saved through the dedication and brotherhood of my football team. I also had a father figure for a Head Coach, Willis Stelly, who I credit for my maturing into a decent young man. I started coaching at my Alma Mater that Fall and realized that I would be part of football my whole life.
