I was born and raised in the great state of Iowa, and I’m still here. I make my living as a bricklayer.
I’m an avid Iowa Hawkeyes fan along with the Chicago Cubs. Go Cubs!!! And on NFL football Sundays, Da Bears are being cheered on by myself and my nine-year-old daughter.
I first got involved in this league by partnering with my dad, Jim, when I helped manage his “Gun Slinger” team in the original Austin Gonzo League. Dad eventually turned the team over to me, and I re-christened it “Corn Fed.” What can I say—I’m just an Iowa hick who loves his home state and all that it offers.
My best friend is Robb, another corn boy, known to all of you as “Chico’s Bail Bonds,” or, as he is known in Pen Scratches, Chico’s boss in “Chico & The Gang.”
I look forward to another season of fun and friendly competition with the New Austin Gonzo League.
