Let me start off by saying I'm sorry. I'm sorry and ashamed of my actions. NO, I was not under the influence of any drugs or steroids. People close to me know I would never touch that stuff. I have always been a clean kid....
I have been hiding behind my smiles and jokes for many years. Over the years the stresses of fighting, family, business, and coaching has built up into the mother of all meltdowns. I did try to commit suicide that day and thanks to my wife and Jim Amormino I'm here today. From that point the Sheriff's took me to the hospital where doctors and psychologists could help me and analyze my situation. They say everything happens for a reason and I believe that because I am alive today and now realizing that I need help and would've never reached out for help without having hitting rock bottom and being forced to.
I just got home and from here I'm going to hang low and relax and take one day at a time. Thank you everybody for your support. This has been a very hard time for me. I love my students and my friends and my family. I love you all.
Thanks for listening,
