Where were you born and what is your history in athletics?

I was born in Minneapolis, MN; and I first played all sports in my neighborhood, including football, basketball, baseball, and soccer.  My first organized sport was cross country running which I began as a 7th grader.  I also played basketball that year and continued doing that in the spring.

In 8th grade I continued to participate in cross country and basketball.  I added track & field in the spring.  Since I was only 5'8" in 9th grade I was not able to make the freshman basketball team at Hopkins.  I do continue to play that sport through what is known as the Southwest League.  The Southwest League is recreation level basketball for the greater twin cities area.

So my current sports are cross country and track & field, but I am an avid basketball player as well.  I am now 6'1" 185,' and believe I am still growing since I have some tall relatives.
