“He has improved dramatically since stepping in the gym almost a year and a half ago.

He is really a great athlete and pushes others around him to be great athletes as well.” Comments Coach Christine.

Coach Way Joe adds, “He doesn't give up... ever... has the mental fortitude to keep going and finish every workout as instructed by coaches. Hate working out with him because he beats my butt.”
