Personal: Son of Jeanne and Glenn Best, and grew up the youngest of two children with older brother Garren...His parents watched "The Social Network" and thought since the actors who portrayed the Winklevoss twins had big upper bodies, he would be perfect for the sport and signed him up for a summer camp the next day...Enjoys reading, video games, exercising, and watching movies.
