Trust the Journey.
You never know where life is going to take you.
I was an athlete, then a police officer in Philly, and then in the service in Iraq. But in 2009, I was injured, and life started over.
I had to take everything I learned and transition my skills into the civilian workforce. Instead of letting that get me down, I got to work. I moved to Maine to work at Poland Spring and started focusing on what matters: moving forward. So I found a way to do that, literally. I started mentoring and coaching young athletes, channeling all that I had learned – as an athlete, as a cop, a veteran – and help train the next generation to push themselves forward. To be their best selves.
I coach track & field and football, but above all I try to be a positive role model. I help the students learn how to be leaders on the field so they can take that confidence and become leaders off the field.
