I have a lot of knowledge accumulated over the years and I am willing to share it with others. I graduated from Brookport High School in 1972. I was a member of the Beta Club (A National Honor Society). I also scored a superior score on the NEDT test as a Senior. This put me in the upper percentile of high school students in the State of Illinois.
I enrolled at Southern Illinois University but even though I did not graduate I learned a lot about Criminal Justice and many other challenging courses.
I joined the Military (Navy) in 1978 and was Honorably Discharged in 1982. I was a Fire Control Technician (Petty Officer 3rd Class) on the USS Henry B Wilson. She was a guided missile destroyer. I have been to 10 different foreign countries while in the military. I have extensive training in electronics & electricity because I had to operate and maintain the ship's weapons and radar.
Upon being discharged I enrolled in Control Data Institute and learned Computer Programming. I also graduated from Coyne College studying Electrical Maintenance. This helped me to be employed By AT&T for more than 23 years as a Telecommunications Specialist. I also worked for Chicago Housing Authority as an Elevator Mechanic.
I have an FCC License and I am a Certified Merchant Marine. These are not all of my accomplishments but I think it qualifies me to tutor students on a variety of subjects.
I got my love of baseball from my father, who was an outstanding pitcher and hitter on the local sandlot teams. I have spent many hours watching baseball on television and watching live games too. I played baseball at Brookport High School for three years, and was a starter each year. I started 2nd base as a sophomore, 3rd base as a junior and right field as a senior. I know how to bunt, slide, steal bases, etc. I know the strike zone. I can watch the 3rd base coach and steal their signs. I know when the pitcher balks. In short, I know baseball.
I have played basketball in some form or another since the seventh grade. I played elementary basketball,freshmen high school basketball,intramural basketball in college, and played in the Navy on the Ship's basketball team.I am quite good even at my age of 58. I understand the rules. I can also referee games. I know the difference between college and pro rules. I know each position and how it should be played. I know basketball.
