The Story behind Meatball Man
There is no greater bond than the one between a coach and an athlete. As a coach, I had the privilege of coaching, sharing and most importantly – learning – from Mark. I have had the honor of being good buddies with Mark for a very long time. Mark and I met while Mark was in high school. Mark soon became a trainee of Developmental Fitness Company. He also joined the Special Olympics power lifting team in which I have the honor of coaching. Mark and I were attending a graduation party together in which Mark was consuming his favorite – the meatball sandwich. As buddies tend to create funny nicknames for each other as a symbol of their friendship – Mark "The Meatball Man" was born.
The Story behind Hoagie Boy
Sean has been my coach and friend since 2001 and that's a long time to be friends. We met when I was a freshman in high school. Sean and I had fun teasing each other about eating too much at a friend's graduation party. He is Hoagie Boy and I am Meatball Man since then. Sean is a wonderful person and outgoing, and he pushes me through my personal workouts and power lifting. Sean is my buddy.
