IT BEGAN LIKE THIS…
As a kid I can remember throwing the football up in the air dreaming of the day that I would make the winning catch in the NFL, I would constantly see myself running out of the tunnel. I could see the crowd going wild, signs with my name in the stands and celebrating with my teammates. These visions kind of came true as I aged and worked as hard as I could to realize them. (Due to my size and not so blazing speed I was able to block for the ones making all the great plays, but who dreams of that as a kid!) As this dream led to an 11 year career in the NFL (3 of which were here in San Diego) and birthed another vision of one day owning a business that would not only have an opportunity to serve the great people of my community, but to provide excellence again through hard work. This is where the King’s Craft Coffee Company comes in. For the past 7 years I spent in the corporate world, although I learned many valuable lessons I know that it just was not a great fit for where my heart wanted to be.
IT’S ALL ABOUT FAMILY
Our family has been engrained in the Poway community since 2006. Over the last ten years our kids have participated as active members of the community in sports, academics, and other outreaches. My wife Monica and I have made amazing relationships in the community.Whether it is volunteering at Tierra Bonita Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Twin Peaks Middle School or Poway High we always appreciate the high standard of family values that set our city apart from others. I have had the opportunity to coach most of my kid’s sports including rec soccer, softball, Poway pop warner football, and now NFL flag football. I get a great sense of pride being able to represent my city and teach the benefits of an active lifestyle.
WE LOVE COMMUNITY
We have a strong pull on our hearts for social responsibility and want to give back to the community we feel so blessed to be a part of. The Kings Craft Coffee Company (TKC) will allow us to meet this goal. TKC will be donating a portion of our sales of select items to non-profit organizations. On a county level we recently have had the privilege to partner with Rady’s Children’s Hospital. I began my relationship with them over ten years ago while playing for the Chargers; during that time I was able to see how my efforts positively impacted the lives of the patients. Rady’s, along with various local youth programs such as Poway Pop Warner, Poway Vaqueros, and Poway High School will be our initial focus. Over time we will expand our areas of support as needs arise.
