CAPTAIN OF THE MONTH
How did you become a captain? One of my previous captains asked if I wanted to take the role for the next session. I took him up on his offer and have been a captain since.
How long have you been a captain? Two years.
Do you have a co-captain? Yes, a co-captain is a must when managing multiple teams. During our run for state and sectional championships, Mike Devereaux was my co-captain and we spent numerous hours organizing and strategizing.
Have your teams won Local Championships? Yes. We have won both 18+ and 40+ state championships with several different teams. We advanced to sectionals on multiple occasions but unfortunately were not as successful.
Any family members participate in league or play tennis? My wife āGā introduced me to tennis about 25 years ago, but I did not really start playing until 2012. I remember one of our first dates was playing tennis and she made me look silly.
How long have you been playing tennis? 3 years.
How did you start playing tennis? My wife invited me to a Saturday fast feed at Springhurst and I thoroughly enjoyed missing every overhead and hitting the back tarp with my forehand! Some things remain constant.

Who is your favorite tennis player? Gael Monfils. His enthusiasm and energy is entertaining.

Do you prefer backhand or forehand? Forehand.
Do you like to play singles or doubles? Doubles.
