B.S. Degree in Information Technology. I played a little and coached a little when I was in the Air Force, and that is where I fell in love with the technical side of football. I have read many books on the technical side of this great sport.

I am 70 years old, served in Viet Nam in 1968, and currently I am employed as a Technical Lead / Developer in Falls Church, Virginia.

I have a wonderful wife of 49 years, 3 great children, two of them married, and 8 grand children.
