Football has been my life for as long as I can remember. I played from 2004- 2009. I coached Wisconsin high school football from 2015-2017. I was a recruiting assistant at Carthage College from 2019-2020. Lastly, I have been scouting players for the NFL Draft for many years. In 2019 I had several scouting reports published in the Sports Info Solutions Rookie Handbook and in 2020 I had dozens of articles published on the FantasyPros website covering the 2020 NFL Draft.
