He accepted Jesus Christ into his heart when he was a child, but at the time, he said, "I never knew what that meant. I believe that God saved me from dying in a horrible car accident in Vermont, and from there I started to take my faith a little more seriously. I met a man named Jansen Asbill and he really opened my eyes to the Lord. And then my wonderful girlfriend and family helped change me for the better."

Regarding how his faith impacts his sport, he says, "Once I put winning in God's hands, I stopped worrying about that. I just went to tournaments and shot with no fear, doing only the best I can do and leaving the rest up to God." His name is Brady Ellison.
