Hometown... Caldwell, Ohio (yes, a Buckeye) Favorite Verse .... Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. -Colossians 3:23-24(NIV) 

Go to meal... Any sandwich, Mexican, or a good steak. Motto..."Remember who you are and what you stand for" (Coach Damron, KCU Knights) To relax... He likes  to go the mountains! Normally it's a nap on the couch while Margaret watches a Hallmark movie.
