As a 9th grader, I competed with the high school kids and out of 600 people, I finished 10th.

Being the 8th out of 10 kids, and being the one that stayed in trouble, I sort of became a momma's boy.

I hate to blow my own horn, but I gave a lot of people fits.

I love going out and doing new things.

I was always active - I went from baseball to football. I didn't have time to work out.

I've always played with kids that were five, six, seven years older than me.

In baseball, I was a pitcher, which I hated because there was no action there.

My favorite driver is always either the bad guy or the underdog.

My workout was running down fly balls, stealing a base, or running for my life on the football field.
