I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania playing everything from baseball, football and soccer to karate, motocross and even gymnastics. Early on though I found my niche - thanks to my father - wrestling. My father had been a fantastic wrestler in high school, and he had me rolling around on the ground starting to learn things literally before I could even walk. My father was a close friend of Mr. Angle, the father of future Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle which provided me with wrestling and weight training advice from Kurt when I was only in sixth grade. Kurt taught me all the basics as far as which exercises to do, how to do them properly, and for how many sets and reps. At the beginning of my senior year, I had to make a difficult decision between wrestling and football. As wrestling has weight classes and football does not, I believe I would better be suited at my then current weight of 112 pounds for wrestling. I loved every minute of it up until breaking my arm in 3 places at the end of my junior year. I took a year off through my senior year, which I can honestly say I regret. I had missed this opportunity, I could have achieved a level of greatness if I had just kept at it and given it on hundred percent - like my father always told me to do.
