"I decided to coach and teach mostly for the same reasons. Growing up I was not the smartest in the classroom and I wasn't the best on the field BUT I had teachers and coaches who motivated me to be better. They taught me that hard work, a positive attitude, and a kind spirit can get you a really long way. Most importantly, they taught me how to be a better human being. Since high school, I knew that I wanted to impact young people in the same manner than certain coaches and teachers impacted me".

"One of the coolest parts about me teaching and coaching at the Woodlands is that I get to coach under Coach Wade who was my high school coach. Not many people get the opportunity to do that. Along with most teachers and coaches, I went into the profession because of the coaches and teachers that inspired me along the way. I can’t wait to give back to my students what my teachers and coaches have given to me".
