Accomplishments

During my Air Force tenure, competing in the sport of POWERLIFTING, I was inducted into the Air Force Heritage Hall of Fame and United States Air Forces in Europe SPORTS HALL OF FAME. I won Air Force Athlete of the Year, Pacific Air Command Athlete of the Year and United States Air Forces in Europe Athlete of the Year. I went undefeated in 8 consecutive Air Force and Armed Forces National meets and won several USPF National & IPF World titles along the way, spanning 17 years and three different weight classes. I still hold the highest posted total in a sanctioned meet in the 181 class with a 2110 total.
