Off the Diamond

I spend time with my boys whenever I can. My two sons, Brayden (12) and Cannon (5) keep me on my toes. We built a house in Decorah a few years ago and cannot imagine raising them in a better community than this one!

When we aren't at a Norse Athletics home event, we love to go for walks and bike rides by the Upper Iowa River, go to the Decorah Fish Hatchery and Phelps Park, eat Mabe's Pizza or burgers at T-Bocks, and get ice cream at the Whippy Dip! My brother played football for the Norse from 2004-2007 so he loves to come back to visit us in Decorah. My parents have been my biggest fans for 40 years. They travel with the softball team to Florida each spring and rarely miss a post-season contest in which the Norse compete.
