My parents came to every one of my games during high school, whether it was raining or snowing, they were there.” He thanked his mother’s brother, the late Pete Braun, “for teaching me almost all that I know about every sport.” He also thanked his dad’s brother, John Volmering, brother Matt, and cousin Derek Volmering for “being my role models. Watching them play throughout the years, either at the high school or college level has inspired me to be all that I can be in the game of football.”
