    Dont forget also 2 national champion in javelin! One of the mostly naturally gifted people Ive ever met but compounds it with being a total gym rat. The type of guy that would rather stay in and watch netflix while staying out of trouble than causing mayhem in the bars. High character and deserves consideration from the next level.
