Athletic Ability: Marginal today - too old and out of shape - used to have a decent basketball game (quit organized ball 5 years ago) and baseball game. Great #4 in golf's captains choice because I play only 2-3 times per decade but shot in the upper 70 and lower 80 as a teen and can hit 10-15 great shots without playing. Passed all my PT tests in the Army up until retirement in 2001.

Sartorial Style: terrible - Shorts, tee shirt, short sleeve golf-type shirt and tennies. work is business casual. hate to buy clothes.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Unsweetened iced tea, stout beer, and red wine. Lots of tea and several beers or glasses of wine on occasion.

Political Philosophy: Independent with some conservative (moral,fiscal and defense) beliefs and liberal beliefs (helping people less fortunate). Will not support anyone who supports abortion regardless of party.

Religious Philosophy: Devout Catholic - Latin rite. Am studying for the permament diaconate (1 1/2 years done 3 years to go as of 08/04). Strong believer in practicing the corporal and temperal works of mercy and helping people. Hope to be able to teach the faith shortly. Believe strongly in heaven, redemption and hell.

Musical Favorites: The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Peter, Paul and Mary, the Beatles (yes I am stuck in the 60s and 70s) and ND glea club. Love Gregorian chants (not a group).

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: All of Holtz's quotes. Love to hear him talk. Coach Ray used to say I want my linemen Agile, Mobile and Hostile. Another John Ray quote to a friend, John Pergine (LB) - John got a clip during practice from one of the scout team members and lost it - he flipped the guys helmet off his head and got him on the ground pummelling the guy's head and Ray runs over and grabs John's arm and says "Stop it you're going to hurt your hands".

Miscellaneous Data: I am a died hard domer. Helped start our local ND club and founded a scholarship fund with >$700,000 in principal upon which we pay out over $30,000 per year to local students - we average about 12 students every 4 years up from 2-3 in the early 80s. Love to work with students and helped Vinnie Cerrato with Tony Rice. Live in South Carolina and would not go North again.
