I live in Florida. Born in Minnesota I have always and forever be a Viking fan
I was disabled in a serious car accident on Dec. 8,2007. My wife Jamie was wonderful and cared for me not knowing if I would be brain damaged or totally wheelchair bound. God has blessed me in that I taught myself to walk and stand although I still need a chair or walker at times. But considering I was not supposed to live, or walk if I did live, I am very fortunate, You will notice I have occasional memory lapses of some specific play in a game or player. There was some memory loss.
I used to teach school and coach soccer and assisted in football.
I enjoy boating and fishing. After the accident boating was difficult but with the help of a fundraiser we survived a financial crisis and later got a pontoon which is easier for me to get into and manuever about.
I have enjoyed this site since my "bud" Aaron turned me on to it.
Picture is at last seasons training camp. I got to go in with a disabled group. Being from Florida Persy and I spoke for a long time. He even asked me to take him fishing. We spend about 10 minutes visiting. Sidney was great as I encouraged him and told him this would be his year. Asher allen was great. EvenBig jared spent some moment talking hunting. Kevein Edwards was a gentle giant who saw I has trouble standing and gently lifted me out of my scooter.
Most these guys are real great folks and we can be proud.
