I’ve grown up an avid sports.  I’ve always loved baseball, but football has been the sport that has giving me the most opportunities.  I played both of those in college as a Simpson (IA) Storm.  Previous to that I played football, basketball, soccer and baseball in high school for the Newton Cardinals.  Also either in intramurals or recreations leagues I’ve been known to play some golf, indoor soccer, cycling, sand & indoor volleyball, slow pitch softball, track, racquetball, or really anything with a ball or winners and losers.  As you could imagine we have a garage full of balls, shoes and other various rackets, clubs, bats & goals.

I’ve also spent sometime on the sidelines coaching Division III college football at Simpson College, varsity 3A (Big Schools) soccer at Newton Senior High School in Newton, Iowa.  More recently I coached select youth football for the formerly Millard South Junior Patriots, a USA Football team of the Heartland/Metro Youth Football League in Omaha, Nebraska.  Other coaching experience includes AAU/USSSA Baseball, YMCA soccer & basketball, and Bennington recreation football, soccer, basketball and baseball as well as various summer camps in soccer, football & baseball.
