"My dad is the greatest! Among many lessons, he has taught me that when things get hard you just keep pushing forward and figure out a way to excel. He expected me to be great, which built my confidence and drive. Finally, he is constantly showing me that you never have to stop having fun like a kid. I love being with him, whether it is fishing at a lake, playing softball or just sitting down on the couch to talk for a few minutes. My dad is a stud."
