Tell us a little about yourself: I’m happily married to my amazing wife Amanda of 5 years (together for 12), and we have two wonderful children — Jenna 12, Gavin 5. … In 2008, I started the Midwest Tecmo Super Bowl tournament — which is a video game event that raises funds and awareness for the David Fulcher Foundation for multiple sclerosis. … My first-ever job was at the best mom-and-pop shop ever — the late Jim’s Corner Market in Lindenwald. … Once lived in Macomb, Illinois where I wrote sports at the Macomb Journal. … Been told I look like Carson Palmer with a hat on over 100 times (I’ve stopped counting)
