This is his 1st semester powerlifting and has only competed in two meets this year. One qualifying meet and the National Meet. "It was an emotional weekend for me, had a lot to be grateful for and a lot of special people I thought about who wasn't there who I knew was still supporting me. I was excited because I got my Aggie Ring on Thursday which was a day early because we had to leave out before Ring Day which was Friday. That was a milestone moment for me and to come to the National Meet to represent A&M is all just a blessing. Sense I've gotten stronger I've gotten a lot faster and an overall better athlete. Not sure what God's plans are for me but I'm thankful to be here and going to school at a great University surrounded by very supportive people. Without my mom being here my dad has had to play both parent roles and I'm thankful to have him in my life." Next year the USA Collegiate National Powerlifting Meet will be hosted by Texas A&M April 19th-22nd in College Station, Tx.
