I remember hosting my first ever Arena Football League game. It was the Washington Valor vs the Baltimore Brigade in their organizations’ first game ever. I never would have guessed I would be hosting for these exact same teams in Arena Bowl XXXI less than two years later.
Considered the underdogs, the Valor went 2-10 in the regular season. Leaving me exhausted at urging Valor Nation to keep attending, keep the energy and keep believing. Fortunately, a four-tam structure in the AFL and a mid-season coaching change allowed a miracle to take place.
I could not be more proud to entertain such spirited fans and be a part of an organization with hard-working players and an incredibly supportive staff. It is an honor to display my talent on the big stage and continue to do what I love. This season taught me that when the going gets tough, do not give up, but get ready.
Arena Bowl XXXI is a moment I will never forget
