What They're Saying About John
"I've grown the best relationship with him over the past three years. His commitment to the team is unbelievable. He goes to the gym every morning and has the most intense workouts. And he brings that to us. We'll go on a run for three miles in groups. He just did wonders with our team. Our accolades all go to him because he's the person that pushed us to achieve our goals.
