Like many young boys, John had dreams of growing up to be a professional athlete. After always being picked first at recess to be the quarterback in elementary, John found his love for cheeseburgers and pizza and ended up a lineman by the 7th grade. Though he played sports in High School, John realized his lack of athletic ability would trip up his dream of furthering his sports career. After years of broadcasting the video games he was playing in, John found a love for broadcasting sports. Like all failed athletes and coaches, John has made his way into the sports broadcasting industry.
John is a native of Eustis, Nebraska. While growing up in the town of 401, John worked on a hog farm through High School. He claims if you haven't had to pull pigs or wash out the hog sheds then you haven't truly lived. After attending Doane College in Crete, Nebraska, John lived in Colorado for a year before moving back to Nebraska until his transplant to Yankton.
He still loves cheeseburgers and pizza and enjoys long walks on the beach or a stroll under a star-studded sky.
