After graduating from UNL, I played for the Edmonton Eskimos, Green Bay Packers, Evansville Bluecats, Tennessee Titans, Nashville Kats, San Jose Sabercats and the Omaha Beef.

In 2012, I started working for the TeamMates Mentoring Program which is a non-profit organization founded by Tom and Nancy Osborne in 1991 in an effort to provide support and encouragement to school aged youth. To reach this goal, youth meet one hour per week with a caring adult who serves as a mentor. Mentors are volunteers from the community who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the life of a young person. I work out of the TeamMates Central Office and my role is to provide post-secondary support and scholarship resources so youth can pursue post-secondary education.

I am also a motivational speaker, giving young people and adults a Game Plan to be winners in their performance, attitude and teamwork.  I live in Lincoln, NE with my wife Fara and kids Olivia, Lennox, Hudson and Sophia.

After a two year stint in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, and Philadelphia Eagles, I decided it was time to leave the game of football behind. As the opportunity to play professionally was still an option, it was a personal decision to walk away from the game. After facing injury which required a spine surgery, I moved to California and began using my education earlier than anticipated.

Developing a youth development and team building company was my first endeavor, before taking a position at the historic Los Angeles Crenshaw High School as manager of the tutoring program. Now, making life better for people with disabilities, I have been working for an agency which does just that. OC Adult Achievement Center creates independence and confidence while developing the talents of the mentally and physically disabled population of Orange County.


Why I Chose This Recipe -Pancake-Batter Breaded Chicken Strips

This recipe was created by my father in an effort to make homemade chicken strips. This was a childhood memory from middle school that I never forgot! After realizing he didn't have any flour, my father decided the best alternative would be pancake mix.

The recipe worked out well and I never viewed chicken strips the same ever again! This recipe is a soft yet crunchy, hard yet fluffy, delightful treat which can be used as an appetizer, or main dish.
