A small illustrated journey

WE ALL HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE.

 As I stood there as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos Championship Team for the first time, I realized this was the culmination of all my hard work. Once while conversing with a fan, he mentioned he couldn't imagine what winning a championship must feel like. He remarked that  he could never imagine achieving that kind of success in his life.  Thats when i realized what separates champions from the rest, belief.

we all have a roll to play

At one point, that fan and I made a choice. I chose to believe I would be a pro player while he chose to believe it was impossible. Belief leads to action which leads to success.  You never realize what true achievement feels like until its already happened and then you want to do it again. Motivating yourself through the pain is very hard however, the pain of not achieving your goals can last much longer

WE ALL HAVE A LEGACY TO BUILD

 One way or another you will build  the thing you will be most known for. Many of us never look far enough into the future to see where our thoughts and actions will take us, but with proper planning and the right teammates in place, you're able to move mountains to attain your dreams.  

About Us

OUR JOURNEY NEVER ENDS

 The journey we are all on is ever changing. It's a fools endeavor to seek "closure" over "evolution". We all end this game the same way no matter who we are. The real question then , is who did we become along the way. 

WHY FEAR CHANGE

 So many of us on this journey hold fear for either the unknown of change of the current. You have to ask yourself where those fears came from. Nothing is hard once it becomes habit. Do your best to embrace new habits and your fears will wash away. 

CHOOSE WHATS IMPORTANT

 There are a million little battles you can fight in your life. So many of them are important,  however over 99% of them are completely irrelevant yet take up so much of our time,. Learn to win in every situation and you will never worry about the fights both now and in the future. Everything that happens is an opportunity for you to build your character and level up.

A NEW CHAPTER AWAITS

 The one question I get asked probably the most is "what was life like after football" .  The longer you play the harder it can be to adjust.   I stopped playing early and also started building a family early. It was time to open the next chapter, however every chapter is all in the same book. I wouldn't change a thing from the past and I excitedly look forward to all future challenges.

TO BE ABLE TO SHARE

 When you have the ability to achieve your lifelong goals before you're thirty, if you're not prepared with a bigger dream you may find yourself searching.  Once you realize you can then achieve a new set lifelong goals, life starts again.  When my goals went from Football Rings to Wedding Rings I can honestly say I felt like the luckiest man in the world.

NO RING IS BETTER THAN FATHERHOOD

 You can have thousands of eyes on you but none of them matter as much as those that belong to your little girl. The challenge now is to be the best I can be to set the best example for them. Pride in family is what being a man is all about.

MAKE SURE WE ARE ALL SAFE

 It is with great pride that I have entered into the insurance benefits program for everyday people. When you can afford to take that extra inch of risk you find a much more comfortable style of life. Here's to winning the little things repeatedly.
