As I moved on from professional sports, I wanted to continue to make a difference and impact young people's lives. With HSF, I am able to to accomplish both - help educate today's youth who will be tomorrow's leaders. One of my favorite quotes is "No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence"- Martin Luther King Jr.
