All of the above is interesting information and I am happy to share with you my athletic history and qualifications. But what I am most proud of, and the information that matters most to you as a prospective FRCF member, is what I have accomplished as a Strength and Conditioning Coach. What I can do does not matter nearly as much as what my athletes can do.
