As a result, he was offered a few scholarships. Also, he excelled in track and field. After visiting different colleges, he chose to attend Howard University. Due to circumstances beyond his control, he put his dream on hold and joined the U.S. Air Force to serve his country.
After service in the U.S. Air Force, he returned home and became an employee with the United Van Lines as a diesel mechanic, a long distance truck driver that traveled across the country. He was a very active member in his church. He attended Abiding Love Ministries, Pastor Margaret Bailey; and Greater Holy Light House of Prayer, Pastor Patricia Titus.
