    How did you get started in this business? Was there someone or something that inspired you to take this path in life? I always loved sports but I had a back problem that would not allow me to play after Little League. I became fascinated by sportscasting but I was very shy. It wasn't until I was forced to take a speech course in the 8th grade that I discovered a hidden talent. My junior and senior high speech teachers had the greatest impact on my life.
