Mr. Black (Coach)
I am originally from a small town 20 miles south of Sacramento, Galt, CA. After living in Baltimore, Maryland for two years I came to Idaho in 1999 to attend college and play football. I loved it here so much, that after graduating college I decided Idaho was my new home!
I have a passion for teaching, Physical Education, Health, and most of all my students. I practice what I preach, I strive daily to live a happy, healthy, active lifestyle and I love to help and encourage others to do the same. I am currently working on earning a Masters Degree in Counseling and plan on working part-time as an LPC.
My daily goal is to get students moving and help them to develop a love for physical activities that will last for the rest of their lives.
I love spending quality time with my family and friends, eating yummy food, going to the movies, hiking, swimming, working around the house in my yard, working out, and of course playing with my kids.
Fitness is a huge passion of mine! I have worked as a personal trainer, a professional fitness athlete for Axis Labs and I worked on various projects with Bodybuilding.com. My claim to fame, ;-) I appeared on their TV commercial. I have also competed as a classic physique athlete.
Last but not least, the most important thing to me, my family! They are my pride and joy. My wife's name is Carley, we have four sons and one daughter. Kael, Jett, Jake, Jaxyn, and Kameron. We also have two Old English Bulldogs, Charlie, and Piper.
