I grew up in Luther, Oklahoma and had a wonderful career in athletics and agriculture. I furthered my education on a football scholarship to Kansas Wesleyan University. From there I ventured onto Northeastern State University where I played football until a back injury sidelined my football career. With my football career over, I concentrated in the classroom and received both degrees from NSU. Once I was hired on at Kellyville, I met Coffee Pierce which taught just a few doors down from me. With persistence, I finally won her heart and her hand in marriage! We now have boy and girl twins and their names are Pierce and Traegan Ballard. My life now consists of school events and hunting trips! I wouldn't have it any other way.
