What are your fondest Stingrays memories?
Playing with my brother. Watching Damien Prescott and Adam Calder wrestle.
Prior to suiting up with your brother, Rob, when had you last played together?
Besides pick up, maybe when I was 5 and he was 7.
Who was tougher, you or Rob? Better scorer?
How did you wind up with the Stingrays less than a year after taking the Pensacola Ice Pilots to the Kelly Cup Finals?
I was traded from Pensacola to Tallahassee and decided to retire. Got talked out of it by Louisiana’s coach. Louisiana traded with Tallahassee to get me and I went back and played about 3 weeks in Louisiana. Then the league voided the trade due to the player I was traded for being injured. Then, Tallahassee traded me to the Stingrays.
Do you still keep in contact with any of your former Stingrays teammates? If so, who?
Damien Prescott, Dave Seitz, Adam Calder, Trevor Johnson, and I’ve recently seen Brett Marrietti, Jason Fitzsimmons.
What do you miss the most about your playing days in South Carolina?
The people…best fans in the league and nicest people in the country.
Any regrets? Wish you could change anything about your time here?
I wish we did better in the playoffs.
Anything you’d like to say to Stingrays fans who might read this?
Thanks for all the support on and off the ice when I was there.
