Q: What do you do outside the printing plant?
A: I coach softball; girls’ fast pitch. I actually started with my daughter, Jessica, when she was five. She’s 13 now and has been playing ever since.
Q: Do you have any other children?
A: I have quite the family… Two older girls — Monica (21) and Angela (19), and a son, Thomas (18). My loving wife, Nicole, simply must be mentioned — they’re all so supportive. I love my family. We’re all here in Austin.
Q: I’ve heard you talk sports with Mr. Beto as a dad, and a fan. Do you like any particular team of the university’s?
A: I’ve always been big on football. This Thanksgiving, I worked in the concession stands for about five hours. Of course, I’m a softball fan. Who doesn’t love UT sports?!
