As a football and track standout in high school, Michael had not specialized in bobsled – but the first time he tried it, he was drawn to the combination of teamwork and adrenaline. He quickly mastered the craft, and the Army supported him through four trips to the Olympic Games, two as an athlete and two as a coach. He personally won a bronze medal in the 2002 Olympics, and has coached athletes to five Olympic medals.

Be competent in your craft. Stay confident. Connect with people who support you and live the Army values. Give your best effort one day at a time.
