People tell me my glory days are behind me, but I still like to think I’m the ESPN Academic All-American Maryville College football player I was in 2007, though I’ve found it hard to sprint in a suit. Nowadays I settle for a good UT football game with the family, where I’m safe from injury and don’t have to take out insurance policies for my legs.

I spend a lot of my free time golfing as well. I’m still trying to figure out where people buy the balls that go straight!? When I’m not at a football game or on a golf course, you’ll find me traveling with the family, cooking and hosting friends at my place.

I’m also very passionate about improving the community around me, so I’m very involved in charitable organizations important to me, and they help fuel my desire to help others, both professionally and personally.

Did I mention I love my family more than anything? Truly, none of what I do means anything without them.
