I Am an American Coach

For 85 days I put my heart and soul into Swansea City. I failed. But to get anywhere in life you must experience failure. I remain proud and strong.

To My Dad

The Big Man

The first time I met Shaq, he was headlining a hip-hop group that was performing in a small town in Montana.
