Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved sports! Whatever sport was currently in season, was my favorite at the time. Whichever season it was would determine my favorite sport. Baseball season, I would throw tennis balls against the house imagining that I was about to throw a “no hitter” in the World Series. During football season, you would find me throwing touchdown passes to myself in the front yard. I was always going play-by-play, winning national championships along the way. But, basketball was the sport that had a special place in my heart. The thrill of visualizing myself, making it feel so real, may sound silly, but that psychology and practice could have been a key skill that enabled me to succeed in the future. National championships in the front yard began when I was in third grade, and continued throughout the years.
My high school career was a blast! I was very blessed to be a part of an amazing culture that formed me into the coach I am today. WE won many state championships, and also fell short in a couple. WE didn't believe we ever lost a game though, we “just ran out of time”! Eventually, I moved my focus to track and competed in the 800m and the relays. Sometimes records were in reach, but I always fell short. Even though I didn't put my name on the record books, I was a part of three state titles on the track my senior year - the 4x800m and 4x400m relays, and the open 800m!
College was where I found my passion for the sport. Competing at the Division II level helped me develop as a runner, as most of my background was basically in basketball and football. By my sophomore year, I was all in! I found success in the 800m and the mile but it was a continual process to stay competitive with the best in the country. This sport requires discipline and consistent hard work year-round. At the apex of my college running career, I finished my senior year winning the national championship in the 1500m. Along the way, I ran 1:50.1 in the 800m, 3:43.4 in the 1500m, 4:04 in the indoor mile and 3:59.7 in the outdoor mile. By the end, I achieved All-American status seven times - in the 800, mile and 1500m events.
Today, I run professionally in hopes of achieving my dream of lining up against the nation’s (and world’s) best runners. My current personal bests are 3:56.1 in the mile and 3:38.1 in the 1500m. My wife, Kelly, and I work at Fort Hays State University and are assistant coaches for the FHSU Track & Field and Cross Country Team.
My vision in this life is to always encourage athletes on their journey, show them that optimism is a competitive advantage, teach them to be curious and never stop learning, and to always serve those around you!
