Danny Lester, when We first started throwing he was the first guy who really made us feel welcome, and he’s still that way today. He is always very supportive of new players and loves to see the game grow!!
Who is your favorite pro?
Kyle Mayday Malone!!Favorite team? This is a tough one. So many great teams out there but I’d have to say Jordan Camba and James Baldwin.
What made you want to become a rep?
Honestly I thought it was a cool name for a bag. Lol I was so new to the game I didn’t know the difference between a good bag and a bad one. I started as a rep 2 weeks after Austin started the company. Austin has done a great job of growing the company, and making sure that we have a bag to offer for every type of thrower.

Oh man, idk. I’ve been around a while. Several hundred I would guess.

I am an elite level karaoke singer, mostly country and 90’s hip hop. I cheer for my Mizzou Tigers, KC Royals and KC Chiefs!! And I love spending time with my wife Angie and our 4 children.
What do you do for a living?
I do outside sales for an electrical distributor
Do you have any ambition to qualify as a pro?
Yes. I have given myself a 2 year time frame to get it done.
How confident are you about qualifying?
By the end of this coming season I want to be very confident.
What is one piece of advice you would give new players to the sport?
Throw Killshots and have fun!!
And last but not least- do you have a mantra that you live by or quote that defines you?
Be a humble winner and a gracious loser!
