Thank You I appreciate everyone coming out, and the selection committee for honoring me with this prestigious accomplishment. When told I was making the hall of fame I had to think about my accomplishments at the high school during my career. I had to think about individual accolades, and personal accomplishments that I had achieved, but the only thing that really stuck out in my head was the CCS championship that our team won in 2005. I realized that football is the ultimate team game, and personal accomplishments are great, but they do not mean as much unless your team is successful. That is what I prided myself on when I played cougar football working hard, and making sure others were working hard beside me, and that’s one of the reasons I believe I was so successful. Half Moon Bay is unique place, and playing football here is a one of a kind experience. There is so much love, support, and sense of community here that you can’t get anywhere else. So I want to say thank you to the community, who kept an eye on me, and for the most part kept me out of trouble. I want to thank you to all the coaches over the years in all my sports for teaching me valuable lessons. I want to thank Mark Foyer also known as scoop for covering Half Moon Bay sports like we were pro athletes. I want to especially thank Matt Ballard, Keith Holden, Powell Chee, and Don Dias who were my coaches during my football years that taught me if you win the hit and hustle, and are willing to put in the work then you will be successful in not only football, but life. And most of all I want to thank my family, who has put up with me for 25 years. I am grateful I get to work here as a small business owner, and real estate agent. Half Moon Bay is a place I will always call home. Thank you.
