To whomever nominated me as "Fan of the Year" in Lacrosse Magazine, my sincerest thanks. It caught me by surprise and brought a tear to my eye to see my name. (The amount of background info was a bit unnerving, however... JK)
Lacrosse has become an important part of my life and I will continue to work my hardest to help it flourish in Des Moines, throughout Iowa, and across our region. As great as my love for the game is, I have not done this alone. Thanks to Zach, Tyler, Jim, Iowa State Men's Lax, Drake Lax, Valley lax, Coach Tumbas at 412, and the countless others that have helped get the game going in Iowa. We are looking forward to an even bigger year in 2011!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
