I grew up in the small town of Rosman, North Carolina. Honestly, there wasn’t a lot to do except fishing, hunting, and playing sports. So, that’s exactly what I did!
My dad was a bow-hunter and often shot in local archery tournaments, mostly for practice. Around 5 years old, I started going with him and quickly began to pick up on archery. Soon enough, it’s what I was best at!
I started winning locally, then nationally, then on the world level - all at a young age. I won several Shooter of the Year awards and World Championships as an amateur. I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue, but at the end of high school, I found myself at a crossroads.
I had a chance to play both basketball and baseball at the next level and while I loved both of them, I knew deep down that archery was it for me. So, I turned down the scholarships and began to focus all of my efforts into creating a career. I wanted to be the best that ever lived.
My rookie year as a professional archer was filled with a lot of struggle. I had no sponsors, was juggling a full-time job as a rock mason, and had just begun a new relationship with my now-wife, Samantha. While I ended up winning Rookie of the Year, I didn’t finish in the Top 5 at any of the events that season. I worked so hard that winter on every aspect of my game. Every spare minute I had was dedicated to it.
The first event of 2007, I missed the Top 5 cut. I was at an all-time low. I was spending every dime we had chasing this dream that seemed to avoid me at every turn. I was discouraged and on the verge of walking away. After some conversations with those that matter most to me, I decided I would go to one last event.
I did exactly that… and ended up setting an all-time high score of 462. Over the next 15 years, I went on to win 13 Shooter of the Year awards, 13 World Championships, and over 60 National Titles.
