 U.S. Olympian

I have an athletic background which has opened the door to many opportunities. I am a U.S. Olympian in the sport of bobsled and competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. I have traveled the world with Team USA, where competition has taken me to Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Switzerland.

 The Door

During the Sochi Olympics, I got stuck in my Olympic Village bathroom and had to break down the door. The picture of the busted bathroom door has been retweeted over 27,000 times and seen by an estimated 10 million people around the world!

I have been featured on ABC, CNN, CBS, Good Morning America, NBC Olympics, Fox Sports, TIME, USA Today and many other media and news outlets around the world. I even earned a spot to compete on the popular TV show, American Ninja Warrior!

I also had the opportunity to tour The White House and met The President and First Lady with my fellow Olympic teammates.

Can you believe the the broken door in Sochi called for an audition to train with a S.W.A.T team? The Denton S.W.A.T. team showed me how to break down a door “the right way” with a battering ram!

 Pro Football

I also played pro football, spending time with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Turns out, there have only been three people to play in the NFL and compete in the Winter Olympics. Herschel Walker and Jeremy Bloom were the first two, and I am fortunate to be the third.

Media and news outlets around the world went crazy over the broken door situation.

I am a former pro football player, spending time with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Only three people have played in the NFL and competed in the Winter Olympics (Herschel Walker, Jeremy Bloom and Johnny Quinn).

I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Pre-Law and left as the school’s All-Time Leading Receiver. I also walked-on to the track team and helped anchor the 4×100 relay to a NCAA Regional mark and the third fastest time in school history. In 2011, I was inducted into the University of North Texas Hall of Fame as a first ballot candidate. In 2013, I was selected as one of two receivers for the UNT All-Century Team.

I grew up in McKinney, Texas, where I was an All-State receiver at McKinney High School. Despite leading the State of Texas in receptions and finishing second in receiving touchdowns at the Class 5A level, I was a non-recruited student-athlete. I did not receive an athletic scholarship until two days before signing day. I am also the founder of The Athlete Watch, an online pro-active leadership course that helps student-athletes and their families search for scholarships.

 My Family

I married my lovely wife, Amanda (follow her on Twitter) on May 3, 2014! We have one dog, a boxer named Scout, who is the friendliest dog in the entire world. We enjoy being a young couple that can pick up and go on a moment’s notice. One day, we hope to have a family. When we are not traveling, we live in McKinney, a suburb 45 minutes north of Dallas, Texas.

My wife is gorgeous!
