On being a part of Athletes in Action:

“AIA - It's really good people.  To share something I believe in and my faith is why I wanted to be a part of this.  To support something that's trying to help people and be here is what's important.  My wife and I are very much into our faith and to be here and celebrate with others is really special.”
