BACKGROUND/BIO 

First off, sports are my life. I have been playing or coaching my entire life and I love every second of it. I played Quarterback at Lake Stevens HS from 2009-2012 and I played at Central Washington University from 2012-2016. Fun fact about myself was that the Boston Red Sox drafted me in the 2012 MLB Draft as a Pitcher, but I chose to play football at CWU instead! I graduated from CWU in 2018 with my degree in Business Management and a Minor in Sports Business.

I have a great and supportive family that still lives in Lake Stevens, and I have just recently moved down to Puyallup with my beautiful and wonderful girlfriend Katie who is a 4th grade teacher at Foothills Elementary for the White River School District.

My hobbies include coaching football and baseball, hanging out with friends, and playing video games. Currently I am working as a coach here at White River and as a coach/instructor for baseball at Northwest Prospects Academy in Puyallup. I also coach a summer select program and next year I plan on coaching for Baden Baseball Club.

 

FAVORITE FOOTBALL MEMORY 

My favorite football memory so far is when I was at Central Washington University and we were trailing Dixie State University 21-0 at halftime and we scored 24 unanswered points to beat them. I threw for a game high 397 yards and had 3 total TD’s. I also held the game winning 42-yard field goal from our kicker! DSU had a few NFL prospects on their team and it was a fun game to win. I also played a game at the University of Montana and it was the loudest game I have ever played in. We unfortunately lost that game, but it was still an extremely fun experience.
