Q - Why Pap’s?
When I’m out on the golf course, or at the gym, I need something to fuel my A-game. That’s why I go for Pap’s Beef Jerky. I love the rich flavors they offer while still being an all-natural, no sugar, high protein, and low-fat snack. It’s an ideal choice to get me through my day.
Q - How’d you become a Pap’s Ambassador?
I met the Pap’s team through our the Dan-O’s Chipotle Jerky collaboration and I saw a lot of my own values and ideals within the company. After talking with them, I just knew I had to partner with them.
Q - What’s your piece of advice for fledgling athletes?
Play as many sports as you can as long as you can. Have fun, play hard, and listen to you coaches!
Q - Favorite sport now that you’re retired from Football?
Golf. I’ve always been a golf fan and I love being able to play a lot more now.
Q - Favorite Pap’s Jerky Flavor?
Being from Cincinnati, I thought my favorite flavor would be Grippos but I like the Dan-O’s Chipotle the best.
