His college football teammate David James (HF Vikings football coach) speaks of being quite the shot putter back in the day. Throw off? Yes! #idea #challenge #fieldnation #thrownation #atn #aretethrowsnation #trackandfield #fieldandtrack Life as I know it... #currentsituation #glutenfree #eats #foodie #snacks #healthy #diet #ilovebreadthough 😩👅 #thestruggleisreal #icaneatallthepopcorninonesitting #popcorn Puttin In Work! #crossfit #festivusgames2017 #festivusgames Grateful for another day.

Thank you Coach Wieneke for giving my best friend the opportunity of a lifetime 2 decades ago. I'd have never met him had it not been for you and Coach Williams. I'm also grateful to Coach Winkler and Coach Garner for the opportunity they gave me. I may have been here for #TrackAndField but I graduated with a lifetime full of relationships, friendships and family that I cherish and consider blessings. I'm loyal to this institution for many reasons, but mainly because of the huge impact it's had on my athletic career, coaching career and especially my personal life. Coaches like you are few and far between! Love always, D. #illini #ill #ini #tracknation #trackandfield #fieldnation #family #illinistrong #orangeandblue #celebration #life SIS!!!! @nanafaavesi92 Walking into the field house seeing these girls put in work...
