Personal: I have one younger brother, his name is Austin...This is my first time making the Junior US Team. I made it in Elite Kumite 14-15 -70kg...My real-life hero is my fight coach Sensei Frisvold. He has pushed me to be the best possible karate athlete that I can be. He always believes in me and has been my mentor. He always makes time for me to get in extra training too. I am very grateful to have him in my life....My biggest win so far was the 2019 US Open which was in Las Vegas. I finally realized that I can be one of the best Kumite fighters in the country after I won this. It really boosted my confidence and helped me really believe in myself. ..."Everybody has a dream, but not everybody has a grind" -Eric Thomas
