 Other Interesting Team Information
Hockey is really this race team's first love. I played hockey on travel teams in Omaha from the time I was six years old until I was 17. Then I went on to play in the U.S.H.L for four years, playing for the Austin Mavericks of the Minessota Junior A Hockey Leauge. Then I ended up playing for the Sioux City Musketeers. From that point I traveled around looking for a place to play in college. I tried to make a career out of it, and along came... Mike Jr.!
