Has been known as one of the fastest and fearless players in the league relentless to dive onrocks and in trees. “A real deal highlight reel.” With a drop of a beat I hold the record forthe best dance and vertical distance doing the “worm”. Probably most known for a being ateam player and my love of the DSL. The quote (after winning the 2012 championship) “Itbrings a lot of hearts together to make one big heart, and everybody in this league has apiece of my heart,” has summed up the DSL for me, and my amazing friends in Korea. It’s agreat honor to be part of the DSL Hall of Fame and family!
