His considers his biggest achievement was that he finished ahead of Jimmy Houston and Rowland Martin in a major B.A.S.S. tournament on Cherokee lake in 1982.

The one thing about my career is there has never been one day that I got up and dreaded going to work. I cannot explain the satisfaction I get from helping others. It’s always been about my patients and not just a job. I hope that we have the opportunity to help many others in the future.
