After graduating with a B.S. in education, a knee injury prevented him from pursuing a pro-football career. He then worked as a police officer in the inner city of Tulsa, Oklahoma for six years.
    He moved to Indianapolis to work for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and accepted the position of Chaplain for the Indianapolis Colts organization.
    A national motivational speaker, his comments are based upon life experiences, work with the Colts’ organization and the responsibilities that each of them share in helping one another.
