3 -Time American Ninja Warrior Competitor, Motivational Speaker
I have been involved in athletics my entire life. In Highschool, I excelled in football, basketball, and baseball. I went to East Texas Baptist University to continue my athletic career, but instead, I felt called to be a youth pastor. I began youth ministry my freshman year of college and realized that I should use my athletic gifts as a way to connect with students and share the Gospel. After graduating college, I was searching for a new athletic outlet. My students encouraged me to try out for American Ninja Warrior.
I made a short submission video and applied to be a contestant on the 5th season of American Ninja Warrior. I never received a callback and I assumed that dream had faded. A year later, I received an unexpected call from the shows; producers asking me to submit another video for season 6. In the short span of a month, I trained, lost weight, filmed a video, and to my surprise, I was selected to compete in the Dallas Qualifying round of season 6.
I really want my story to be an encouragement and inspiration to people. I want them to know that they can overcome any obstacle that life throws at them and that we should never ever give up.
