Favorite Linfield Event: Linfield Erik Anderson Memorial Icebreaker, a track meet named in honor of a friend and former teammate.

Favorite Linfield Moment: Winning the 1996 Conference Championship in Track and Field. We then went on to finish in the top ten at the national meet. The time spent with those teammates and memories created was amazing!!

Recent Favorite Book Read: Again to Carthage, by John L. Parker Jr. As a runner and all around running fan, I really enjoyed this book.

Favorite Linfield Hang: The wellness trail, I have run hundreds of miles on that trail. It’s nice because it is a part of our campus and well maintained. Also during the summer when the campus is quiet, my wife and I take our kids to play on the graduation green. It’s a great area for them to run and play!

Favorite Mac Restaurant: Golden Valley Brew Pub - They have the best gluten free menu in town.
