Most people probably don’t think twice about Hurricane Season. But when you grow up in a city like Galveston and live in Florida, it is something you are aware of. You know what can happen, how bad things can get, so you can’t take it lightly when the news says another one is coming.
You don’t want to have to deal with the craziness, like what Harvey created, but its hard to avoid it.
I’ve got a lot of friends in Houston and family in Galveston. Galveston got hit pretty hard last year by Harvey, but not as bad as Houston. Houston was hit real bad; people without power; houses flooded, cars flooded, etc. You couldn’t go anywhere even if you wanted to.
It was awful. I’m glad so many people were able to work together and make the most out of the situation.
Seeing all the pictures of the devastation was horrible. But in that area, that kind of thing happens and you learn to deal with it. My sophomore year in high school we had to relocate for a while because Hurricane Ike hit. It ruined my home and many others’ homes.
I was really happy to be in a position last year to help people who were affected by Harvey. I’ve always been a big believer in helping people when I can, and I look forward to being able to do more.
I’m not a flashy guy; like money doesn’t really define me. I just want to win, have an amazing career, and be mentioned with the greats that came before me. I’m playing against the best competition in the world, and I believe I am one of the best. But first and foremost, I want to be the best husband, father, and enjoy life while helping people along the way.
I just started my foundation, and we have already started to make an impact. I heard Denzel Washington say one time that it's not about the amount of money you have, it's about what you do with the money you have.
