“My purpose in life is to empower people to become the best versions of themselves. It is my goal every day to help with lifting up those around me, and through athletics, I believe we have a unique opportunity to influence young people and to help them to grow their game in the classroom, field or court, and in life. Our athletic coaches and staff members are committed to Academic Excellence, Competitive Successes, Program Integrity, and Community Outreach. Our coaches are dedicated, passionate, intense, and work diligently to ensure that our student-athletes have a phenomenal experience during their time with us. In summary, I am blessed to work for a university that I love, and with amazing individuals that are committed to championing our students daily, in an effort to make the world a better place.”
