Director of Ticket Operations | bret@taxslayerbowl.com | 904.798.5999

Hometown: Ruston, LA
Years in Jacksonville: 6
Favorite College Team: Louisiana Tech
Best Football Memory: So many to choose from – I would pick a memory from a game we lost.  We weren’t a very good team that year but we took a halftime lead on then #8 LSU in Death Valley on a jump pass from our running back (Daniel Porter) to our tight end (Dennis Morris) with 2 seconds remaining in the 2nd qtr.  We lost the game but I left the game feeling confident that one day I would witness LA Tech upsetting LSU.
Fun Fact: I spent a good bit of my college years painted blue at sporting events. It was fun to be there supporting my team in all sports.  But what I truly excelled at was talking trash to opposing coaches, players, and the refs.  I might have been ejected from a few sporting events while doing so.  And yes one of the games was a women’s basketball game.
