Favorite book and/or movie: “The Bible and “Winning” by Jack Welch- I loved where he talked about candor; best movie – wow, too many to choose from, but if it has to be one it’s James Cagney in “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” which I try to watch every July 4th.”

Who is your role model and why? “Number one is Vince Lombardi – he was about striving for perfection even though he knew it could never be achieved. He taught his players to be prepared and to give every bit of effort they had within them and nothing less, and to never give up. Number is two is Winston Churchill – never, never, never quit.”
What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? “My grandmother walked across the football field in the middle of a game that I was coaching. Everyone was yelling at her to get off the field. She was hard of hearing, so had no idea what was being said. I laughed till I almost cried. I miss her to this day. She was like Vince Lombardi, she never gave up no matter how tough life was. She is my real hero!”
