Played for Midland Lee High school as a QB and Corner in west Texas. 4 year starter for UCF as both safety and corner from my freshman year with 14 games as QB also. Tough times but did play in a bowl game. Had a 6 year commitment to the US Army and had a great career as an Officer for 20 years. While in the Army I always kept up on the college and NFL DB;s and helped friends who went on to be coaches. I am now retired and work as a personal DB's coach and mentor for NFL players and working as a contract scout for an NFL team.
