"One of the coolest parts about me teaching and coaching at The Woodlands High School is that I get to coach under Coach Wade, who was my high school coach.

Growing up I wasn't the smartest in the classroom, and I wasn't the best on the field, but I had teachers and coaches who motivated me to be better. They taught me that hard work, a positive attitude, and a kind spirit can get you a really long way. Most importantly, they taught me how to be a better human being. Since high school, I knew that I wanted to impact young people in the same manner than certain coaches and teachers impacted me".
