So you want to know about me. Why?
I am a 1970 graduate of West Seattle HS in Seattle Washington. During my high school years I was actively involved in football, basketball and baseball. I was an all-city selection in football and baseball my senior year. We finished 3rd in the state in basketball. Our only loss was in the semi-finals.
I attended Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois graduating in 1974. I played football and wrestled. In 1983, I returned to the University as an assistant football coach and head wrestling coach. I still coach football there. I was inducted into the athletic hall of fame in 2004.
I have been married to the same lovely woman for 38 years. She owns Freedom Medical Supply in Decatur. We have 3 children, Matt, Megan and Molly. Matt is married and has 2 boys and lives in Dallas Georgia. Megan lives in Bemidji, Minnesota. Molly lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I have been teaching for 36 years. I also was a PE teacher for a catholic elementary while in college. I guess that makes 38 years total. I have coached football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, girl’s track and soccer. All totaled I have coached over 100 seasons.
In my spare time, what little I have, I like to enjoy nature including the night sky and to read. During the summer I will read 15-20 books. My favorite genre is murder mysteries. My favorite book(s) are Lord of the Rings Trilogy or the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. I never could make a decision when it came to books. I like them all.
