Favorite quote: "It takes zero talent to give 100%"- Coach Baudendistel "I hated every minute of training. But I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion'"-Muhammad Ali "Then I made up my mind that no one was gonna beat me or dominate me in anything because I had too much to win for. This is the basis of the whole CARNIVORE CULTURE we preach to you everyday. So find what helps you flip the switch and dominate everyone! be a CARNIVORE!"-Dustin Burford
Person who pushes you or makes you better: I think at that end of the day, motivation is personal. Only I can give myself that push to the top.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: I love the scenery. Beautiful campus, especially being right on the Ohio River.
What do you like to do outside of your sport: I play guitar, lift weights, paint, and longboard.
What did you want to be growing up: I always wanted to do something with art, but have recently wanted to go into the field of exercise science.
