One word that best describes how you work:
Most memorable show win:
All of them are truly memorable for me, but the Champion York barrow in San Antonio in 2012 always sticks in my mind. It was one of the first major breeds I had won myself/as an ag teacher at that point in time. It also had a tie to my history with Daniel Schley and was his first breed champion at a Texas major and that meant a lot to me.
How keep your to-do list?
Notes and I-cal on iPhone.
Put God and your family first.
Advice to ag teachers?
Get with mentors and experienced ag teachers that have been successful and learn as much as you can from them. Never stop learning or get complacent.
Advice to students?
Work as hard as you can day in and day out. Those days and the little extra things you do to push add up to making success.
