The great friendships I forged and the mentorship I received from the coaches.
What do you miss most about wrestling at W&L?
I miss the competition and team camaraderie most. Endless hours in the wrestling room, riding the bus late at night coming back from a win on the road exhausted and eager to have fun, and pulling together as a team cheering each other on during matches and tournaments will always be special memories for me.
What effect has wrestling had on your career path?
While I haven’t made many direct connections through wrestling in my career I have taken the spirit of individual drive and initiative within a team framework with me to the business world which has served me better than any other skill.
