I grew up on a family farm in Paul, Idaho, with four brothers. We were all involved in helping on the farm as we grew up. We learned how to do all kinds of different tasks like irrigating, feeding and milking cows, driving truck, and many other jobs. My brothers and I were involved with scouting when we were younger; I earned the rank of Eagle Scout. I have been, and still am, involved with coaching and officiating basketball with local schools.
