He knows what its like to be homeless and not have a dollar to his name. He knows what it's like to have nearly everyone close to you turn their backs on you.

Where Are They Now?Plattsburgh High School Hornets-
Since I began working with you back in your junior year, of high school physical fitness has always been a big part of your life. How have you transitioned from being a athlete and training year around for your sport to staying active in regular daily life?
I’ve tried to be a bit creative lately and have tried to stay active in ways other than weight lifting. I really enjoy mountain biking and hiking. I’ve also spent a lot of the time I used to spend training exploring other activties. I’ve found that in my last 6 months here I’ve seen and done more in the area than I did in my fours years in high school. I’ve also been wine tasting in Napa/Sonoma and skiing in Tahoe, which I never did before either. My main interests now are to start surf fishing and swimming more regularly.
