Back to Alumni

I first met Kevin Magnuson when I was playing midget in Illinois . . . we instantly got along really well and he fit in really well with my family which is important to me when choosing a family advisor and someone that would become my agent and he is just a very honest and trustworthy guy, which I liked, and we have been close ever since.
