It's the 9th inning of the World Series, you're up to bat. What's your walk-up song?

As always, Thunderstruck by AC/DC

If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

Black Panther - I love the guy’s heart for others, and how he leads. Plus the technology there is incredible.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

Absolutely. Meat and condiments between 2 pieces of bread.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Oh the sounds of summer. It’s been too long. The bugle, people laughing together, the sound of healthy competition, and of course a bouncing 4 square ball.

What is your prayer for this summer?

That our God would use Camp and us to shape boys into young men. And that these young men would leave knowing Jesus more.
