Favorite Simpson Memory: I have several memories that I love to reminisce about during my time on campus. Two of my favorites would have to be being named to the homecoming court (it was such an honor to be nominated by my peers) and having the opportunity to continue to play baseball and football. I was able to play in four playoff games, one of which was in the Metrodome.
Favorite Simpson Tradition: Getting together with my football teammates and reciting our favorite Coach Williams quotes.
The individual attention I received from faculty, staff, and coaches no doubt provided me with the abilities and confidence that I needed to be successful well beyond college.
Over 16 years of service (3 years enlisted and over 13 years commissioned) in the Army Reserve and 3 deployments.
