Playing History:

Played extensively as a youth player locally for SCOR in Oak Ridge where I grew up. At UT there was no mens team but played competitively thereafter with indoor teams in a regional league. 

“I was asked to help out with a friends team and ended up working out extra with some of the players. Thoroughly enjoyed helping them, and from there got more and more involved with teams of my own. The first team that I created initially lost all but one game their first season. They ended up a few years later competing for, and winning a D1 state championship. Seeing players progress like that is really the "hook" that makes coaching so enjoyable!”
