The “real food and music capitol of the world” Louisiana! 504 straight out of New Orleans. Being born & raised in New Orleans wasn’t like the fluffed-up commercials you would see on TV promoting Bourbon Street, The French Quarters, Café Du Monde, etc. Growing up, it was a challenging city and I’d often see friends fall into the wrong crowd, including myself.
Every day, I count my blessings and thank Our Lord & Savior for the man I have become and for the people He has placed in my life that were/are true inspirations to me. I attended De La Salle HS, which was in the Garden District on St. Charles. Unfortunately, due to events that hit too close to home my mother transferred me to West Monroe, LA. It was a small city that was put on the map because the Duck Dynasty television show. Here’s a fun fact, Jase Robertson was my Youth Minster and was a huge fan of our High School football team, the West Monroe Fighting Rebels. I finished my Junior and Senior year being the starting running back for the #1 high school football team in Louisiana and the #2 in the nation my senior year. Those that know me will know that my football journey started when I was 5 years old and that’s when my nickname, Tank was born.
