I grew up the son of a football coach in West Texas and played the Big Three sports early on but later switched to golf. I attended the University of Southern California and played briefly on the California Golden State Tour and the Texas Tour. I was also a golf instructor in Prague, Czech Republic and in Zurich, Switzerland. Favorite job was with Clear Channel Radio's Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 show. While there I was fortunate enough to have weekly chats with sportscaster, Vic "The Brick" Jacobs. Still living in Los Angeles as a humble and fastidious student of Beer League Hockey, a supporter of the Ontario Reign, and of course, a rabid fan of the newly minted Golden Knights.
