I started boxing at the age of 13 at a local youth program in Fort Worth, Texas but did not really take it seriously until I was a freshman (plebe) at the United States Military Academy at West Point. After winning the West Point Brigade Open boxing tournament, I helped restart the West Point Boxing Team, competing against the Naval and Air Force Academies, UNLV, Penn State, and other schools in the National Collegiate Boxing Association. I captained the team my senior year and received the David Marcus Allen Most Outstanding Boxing Award. In the Army, I coached the Fort Sill boxers in local competitions as well continued to compete in amateur boxing (USAB) matches.
