I have been a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan since birth in 1968 and have suffered greatly as a Bengals fan!
Boxing is my first love and I grew up watching the fights with my father and loved Muhammad Ali, Gerry Cooney, Michael Spinks, and for some reason Scott LeDoux.
Basketball was my favorite sport to play and I grew up a huge Indiana Basketball fan and love the history of Indiana High School Basketball.
The NBA I am a fan of the Indiana Pacers and my favorite players growing up were Walt Frazier and Julius Erving.
As a child, baseball was a huge love for me as I grew up watching the Big Red Machine with my father and Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan were my favorite players. My most significant sports memory was in 1983 going to see Johnny Bench’s final game for the Reds and I was sitting in the upper deck down the right field line when Johnny Bench hit his final home run.
I was the head coach of the Evansville Rage in 2012 and led the team to a record of 9-3 and the playoffs.
In 2013 the team moved to Owensboro, KY and we went 7-3 and qualified for the playoffs.
I took over as head coach for the Northern Kentucky Rivermonsters in 2014 after three games and led the Rivermonsters to 5 straight wins and the CIFL Championship game.
I became the Head coach at the Cincinnati Landmark Eagles in 2020 and I am still the Head Coach at the school.
