I’ve been playing sports since before I could talk. Whether it was basketball, football, or baseball, my parents haven’t spent a weekend at home since I was born because I was engulfed in athletics in every way possible. I was lucky enough to play college football at a Division II school in Indiana, so it only made sense to start my professional career in sports. With a degree in Sports Management and Business it was the perfect fit to join the team at Upper Hand.
Taking Coaches Up & To the Right.
Growing up in youth sports, I’ve seen first hand the amount of time coaches and parents spend on administrative work, and I am yet to meet someone that enjoys collecting registration papers and chasing down people for checks. When I first saw what Upper Hand can do, I knew that we were on to something that every single coach will love. Besides saving time on dealing with administrative work, we save coaches endless headaches from having to take calls from parents trying to get their kid signed up and scheduled.

I will never forget watching Kobe Bryant’s last NBA game. Growing up I was always a huge fan for how competitive he was and how much he gave to the game. That was never more apparent than in his last game when he was 39 years old battling from injuries for the last 4 years and he scored 60 points in his final game in front of the LA Laker crowd that watched him help hang 5 championship banners. "Friends can come and go, but banners hang forever," is my favorite Kobe quote because it continues to remind me that you can’t always please everyone, but when you work hard individually it forces others around you to work as hard, which leads to championships.
