Winning My First International Championship

March 16th, 2016 | Uncategorized

I was blessed this past weekend to represent the Northern Ireland premier league in the NAIC All Ireland championship.  It is an amazing feeling to win a championship and be selected as on of the twelve best players in the league.  My first championship was much different for me since I am in a different country and playing with guys I would usually compete against each week.  The best part of the trip wasn’t winning probably because of how well we played.  I enjoyed riding in the car with fellas getting lost on the way to the gym singing R&B songs and making snapchat videos.  I think we would have won a karaoke championship as well that weekend.


The change of pace and new scenery down in the city of Cork made the weekend fun as well.  I was able to relax and explore a new city which is always fun.  My Sports Changes Life brother and Ulster Elks teammate James Zuccarro was selected to play on the team which was cool.  We had an opportunity to just talk as men and get to know one another outside of being teammates and working together.  As we both get ready for this upcoming playoff journey in April being selected to the Northern Ireland select team was great.  The opportunity to get to know a person outside of work really helps you when it comes to working together. 


I am truly thankful to win my first International Championship and I look forward to winning many more.  Thank you for reading my blog. Let nothing stand in your way of working to make your dreams a reality.  “To God Be The Glory”
