My dad has coached me in every sport since I was old enough to play and has been my number one coach and mentor throughout the years. My mom has always pushed me in the right direction in order for me to be successful and I can’t thank them both enough for the things they have done for me.” He also thanked his sister, Nicole, and his little brother, Ryan, “for their love and support and keeping me in line.” He said, “Many have contributed to my life in some way and for that I want to sincerely thank everybody for helping me get where I am today.”
