" Coaching in the Hula Bowl was an amazing experience. Having played in the game back in 2005 and fast forwarding
to coaching in it in 2021 is truly something special. Being able to help impact these aspiring football players to go out and
achieve and experience what I've been so fortunate to have experienced in playing pro ball. Coaching in the Hula Bowl was
