After spending 6 seasons playing professional football, Jim and his wife, Jennifer, decided to make Wilmington home.
Jim grew up in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia; an area that has produced such athletes as Bruce Smith, Allen Iverson, Alonzo Mourning, The Upton Brothers, Michael Cuddyer, David Wright, Percy Harvin, Ryan Zimmerman, Mike Vick, and Lawrence Johnson, just to name a few. From the time he was a child, he had the desire to become a professional athlete. He was able to achieve this goal through a tremendous amount of determination, which required not only countless hours of time but a huge demand on his behalf, both physically and mentally.
Now that Jim's playing days are over, he would like to share the knowledge he gained through his experience as a professional football player, with younger athletes. Jim truly believes that he would have tremendously benefited as a young athlete from what he now provides through Carolina Beach Athletic Development - a program that develops the “overall athlete”, beyond simply being able to run fast, jump high or improve strength!
