He got involved in wrestling at the age of 5 before getting into other sports. He later got involved in golf, archery and basketball. What were the main sports you were involved in growing up? The main sports I was involved with were archery, golf and basketball. I got into archery through my dad who was big into hunting. As I got older, my dad was also into golf and I wanted to pick that (sport) up also. What was your favorite moment in sports? My favorite moment happened when I was in the ninth grade. My dad and I competed in a national outdoor archery contest, and I won my category and my dad finished third in his category. It was the first time we had ever gone to a national championship event. What was your favorite professional sports moment? That was 1991, when Kirby Puckett climbed the fence and caught the ball (robbing the opposition of a homerun) helping the Minnesota Twins win the world championship. What is the one thing that you haven’t done in sports that you would like to do? I would like to become a low level pro to semipro golfer. I think golf is my best sport and, if I had the time to practice, I am convinced I would be a low level pro golfer. If you could meet any athlete and spend a day with them who would it be? I would have to say Ben Hogan, the golfer. He was considered, at the time, the best ball striker that ever lived and he won a lot of tournaments. I would also like to play a round of golf with him. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that … I am fairly outgoing once people get to know me. After you break the shell, because I’m pretty shy when you first know me. I like to get involved with a lot of things, especially a lot of outdoor activities. Photo by Walt Johnson
