“In my 16 years at The Citadel, nearly every family sat in my office, and proclaimed that this was their first rodeo. They didn’t really know where to start. I will be there as a support system for the student athletes, and parents. Serving as each family’s individual life coach, academic counselor, compliance officer, as well as, providing athletic guidance to equip each family with the tools and requirements needed to be on track to pursue their dream of playing ball in college at their appropriate level. Even though I’m not on the field, with E4 I still get to coach student athletes, and be an impact in their life, and that’s what I’ve been called to do.”
