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
