have ever thought about it, do it. It
was worth every penny.
Cowboys/Heat/Yankee t-shirts, and Nike dry-fit shirts.
My wardrobe consists of these staples.
I buy for fit. If a v-neck fits well then I buy like 20 of
them in every color.

Shay told me she didn’t like something, I would change it in a heartbeat.
Her opinion is big to me!
What do your workouts look like?
I have had a weight room/conditioning regime consistently since I was 13 years old.
So for 19 years of my life, it has been a daily activity. That doesn’t mean it is
always easy, but I am a true believer that you can create positive habits in your life.
I can honestly say that in the past 5 years, unless it I was on vacation or sick,
I was in the gym at least 5-6 times a week.
Now here is the kicker. The way you look is not determined by your habits at the gym, but
mainly by your nutrition. 80% of the way you look right now is based on what you eat.
I eat 7 meals a day consisting of chicken, fish, 24 egg whites, turkey, and limited complex carbs.
Do I want to be a body builder? Absolutely not.
My goal is to have a fitness physique, maintain my health, and relieve my stress.
I believe God has called us to take care of our bodies and therefore I honor God
when I take care of the body he has given me.
It’s not easy or everyone would do it, but as Proverbs 13:4 says,
Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper and be satisfied.
As far as my workout goes, I never stop moving.
For those who go to the gym to socialize, talk on the phone, or stretch for 30 minutes,
please don’t complain that you are out of shape. I see so many people that waste time.
My workout partner Ty and I will super set exercises, run circuits, life heavy sets,
and mix cardio in every day. We never do the same exercise twice,
and we constantly mix up the reps and speed. Always keep your body guessing and push yourself.
Definition of insanity anyone? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
What is the key to a happy marriage (especially
when you get married young)?
bad times, and moments when you can’t imagine what you would have done
without the other person. Marriage is
not a 5 year or 10 year commitment; it is a lifetime,
death till we part, commitment. It isn’t a we’ll stay
together until I find something better,
or I will stay with you as long as this doesn’t happen kind of commitment.
Never give up on each
other and the commitment you made to God.
What advice do you have for single gals about
finding a guy?
nothing wrong with joining a singles Bible study, running as fast as you can
towards Jesus and once in a while looking around to see who is doing the same.
I will tell my daughter the same thing. In whatever circumstance you are in, be
single, divorced, heartbroken, engaged, married, and happy.
This is the verse I am currently living
Nothing happens by chance. You are where you are
because that is where
God wants you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Give thanks to
God in all circumstances”.
How many v-necks do you own and where do you buy
What are your favorite stores for clothes?
What is your relationship like with Sean?
Sean and I both have a
lot going on right now, so in this season,
we are not as close as we have been
in the past.
I do expect, once the dust
settles, for things to once again be what they once were.
How do you set goals and accomplish everything
you set your mind to?
college, we would watch films of our games and practices,
and we would always
focus on the plays in which we made a mistake.
We analyzed what we could
have done differently during that practice or game.
That is not to
say that the great plays weren’t celebrated because they were,
but if all you
do is live in the shadow of the positive play how can you ever
expect to gain
ground? I set realistic expectations for
myself and for my staff.
We don’t always
hit them. If we do, we celebrate for a
brief moment, but then we move on.
If we fail,
we learn from what happened and move on to the next.

you stack up all the individual tasks,
you have to be moving in the right
direction or you are in trouble.

I had my time in the sun, but it was a lot of pain and pressure for many
years. In the end, my body just couldn’t
keep up. Even now, I can’t even play a
game of flag football without being able to walk the next day.
Controlled movements, I can do, but anything
else kills me.
I try to live my life
with no regrets and I had none. I was
able to walk away
(which my agent and some of my family never understood). For me it was more important
to be able to play
with my kids later in life. After 3
surgeries in a year, I was ready
to hang it up.
I still love and respect the game more than anything. I have wonderful
memories of everything, but
I am not one of those guys that still
lives wishing he could go back.
How was it like working with Shay and starting

what has been said or done,
at the end of the day I love her and I made a
commitment to God.
For those who don’t
know me really well, I am someone that if I say I am going to do
something, or make a commitment, I don’t stop until it is accomplished.
How did you feel about the
foremost, the producers and everyone that is in production for the show,
the nicest people. I had such a great
experience. The show, which I have
watched every season, is a TV show. This is not
to say that once in a while you don’t catch
magic in a bottle (Sean and
Catherine, Trista and Ryan, Jason and Molly), but a large portion
show is to entertain us as viewers.
Everything you see is real, it’s not scripted,
but there are subtle
hints given that might help get topics and conversations started.

A little gas on the fire never hurt to get it started. That’s all I am saying.
