“Lindsay and I really have a lot of fun rowing. Her and I’s philosophy that is similar but may be different from other people, is that we view it as a skill and an art and more than just a physiological activity. It’s everything - it is trust in each other. It is all the little things everyday that need to be taken care of, taking care of our the bodies and our mind.”
"There were definitely a few times I remember sitting in the school principal’s office telling him I wished I were dead.
I know. Not cool at all, but that’s where I was at in my life.
Then I found sports, my saving grace, and channeled all my anger and sadness into the athletic field. I grew up. My body got stronger. I developed skills. I won some awards and broke some records. I even achieved my dream of playing pro-football in the Arena Football League."
