An ex-athlete (emphasis on ex), I once played four years of college football at three different levels (JUCO, NCAA D-1, and NAIA D-2) and actually had four different head coaches at three schools. I would describe myself as a coaches player with limited talent, and a team first player that got the most out of my ability on the field. That said, I can honestly say that I did not get the most out of my college experience from an academic perspective. However, I did develop some minimal skills for the written language, and an enormous appreciation for literary works; I love to read, but I am a rookie at writing.
Having grown up in Topeka, KS as a Jayhawk, I will always consider myself a Jayhawk. I also have a special interest in Louisiana Tech University, and have always been a fan of Alabama football. I really enjoy the personal stories and the characters that make up sports. College football and college basketball are the sports most interesting to me.
I am married, have three kids, coach kids basketball, play the guitar, read, and generally like anything outdoors. I really like to meet people and get to know them. Everyone's got a story...
As the sports world breaks the news of the Mike Leach firing, I came up with an interesting idea. Would an NFL team be interesting in making him their offensive coordinator. See what reasoning I came up with as to why it makes sense. Appreciate any feedback!
My latest submission. Let me know what you think.
