I have taught English and coached football at THS since August 1996. I enjoy running, lifting weights, reading, traveling, going to ball games, and spending time with my family. I am an avid sports fan and my favorite teams are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Lakers, and the University of Tennessee Volunteers. My wife Allyson is a teacher at Haynesfield Elementary. I have two sons: Trevor (14) and Trent (9).
