Growing up with one older sister, I was my dads "boy." I played soccer, basketball and softball and my dad was my biggest supporter and motivator to be better. Don't get me wrong, I loved it. My dad and I have always had this humorous, sarcastic relationship through poking fun at others and each other. It's safe to say I've learned quite a lot from him as our relationship has grown.
