The one thing I am passionate about...
Sports, politics, assurance and peace though Jesus Christ, and teaching/motivating inner-city kids. Watching, participating, and being a part of sports is what drives me. I am a teacher and basketball coach. Politics are very appealing as well. I am a devoted Republican! But above all, "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold" (Psalms 18:2).
I typically spend my leisure time
I participate in duathlons, so I run and bike as much as possible. I'm addicted to Starbucks coffee as well. On a day that I'm free from coaching, teaching, or going to grad school; I'm hanging out with my friends watching the Buckeyes, Browns, or Cavs. Did I mention Madden '07 is out as well. I also read classic novels, sports magazines, newspapers, and the Bible as much as I can on a daily basis.
The most influential person in my life has been
Basically I want an attractive woman who at appreciates my goals and passions in life and has something to offer as well. Obviously loyalty and great communication are crucial as well. I just want someone whom I can laugh with and share a natural chemistry. The interests and pursuits don't necessarily have to be similar, just a joy for life and someone who offers something to the relationship so we can compliment each other and enjoy each others company.
The first thing people notice about me
My personality is lively and energetic. I enjoy discussing everything from sports to politics to religion. I laugh alot and enjoy meeting people. I'm very humorous, but even more so respectful; and old traditionalist you might say.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was "The Scarlet Pimpernel" by Baroness Orczy. I relish reading all the old classics, especially ones about courage, strength, and adventure. Currently I am reading "The Education of a Coach," about Bill Belickick who has won 3 Super Bowls. It's about hard work, discipline, maintaining goals in life, emotion, paying attention to the minutest of details, and being positive in life.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- salvation through Jesus Christ
- my supportive family/teaching job
- 15 year old dog Rocky/friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm caring and inherently wish the best for people. I want to do everything in my power to help those less fortunate succeed.

A little more about me
"For you have possessed my reins; you have covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well" (Psalms 139: 13-14). We are no accident. God made us and has a special plan for all of us.
