chicago native. pro footballer. reader. writer. lifelong student of the game.
blessed is the man who perserveres under trial because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
Hence, BTB was born.
After going all in on the process of colliding my vision with my reality, I made it happen. I won a championship, got drafted, and began playing the game I love in stadiums full of tens of thousands of people. Just like I dreamed about as a kid.
I witnessed, firsthand, what someone could accomplish if they commit themselves to the process of becoming the best they can be.
BTB became my mantra. I live and die by the day-to-day process that supports my mission to become the best version of myself.
I believe that each person is put on this planet for a reason, and that everyone is made for more. But not enough people believe in themselves. We need to learn how to build unshakeable confidence, tune out the noise, and bet on ourselves.
I believe that if each person were to discover this potential inside of them and constantly pursue the journey of becoming the best version of themselves, the world would be a better place. We’d have more love and less hate. We'd have better medicine, better technology, better entertainment and we’d all live better, happier lives.
I hope to inspire you to pursue more. To be better. To strive to become the best version of yourself with every decision you make, every single day.
That’s the BTB way.
My journey has been full of unique experiences, but there's one in particular that ignited the fire the for the lifestyle now known as BTB.
During my junior year of college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I began taking my dream of playing pro to the next level after I was given a book by a friend of mine. It was called Mind Gym, by Gary Mack.
The book planted a seed in me that I had no clue would change my life. Reading that book sparked the idea inside my mind that everything I needed to succeed was actually available to me. I just needed to pursue it.
I realized that by reading, I could learn from the top experts around the world about mindset, sports psychology, nutrition, habits, and more. The resources I needed to improve the quality of my life were waiting to be tapped into.
I understood from that point on, that I needed to dive deeper into the process of maximizing my potential. I needed to increase my commitment to my achieving my goals and make the sacrifices required in order to succeed.
From that day forward, I started paying close attention to the details. I did everything I could to improve my performance. Anything that might help me accomplish my dream of becoming a professional soccer player.
Looking for any and every way to sharpen my craft, personal-growth became my obsession.
