About James: James is a husband to Melissa and the father to three children: Caedmon, Noah, and Amelia. He attended Grant Elementary School. He is a displaced University of Michigan Fan, loves the Detroit Lions, Tigers, and Wings, and still reads the Detroit sports page despite the fact the calls Charlotte home. James is also the pastor to some incredibly patient people at Renaissance Bible Church.
Favorite Food: Red meat.
Hobbies: James likes to eat good food and exercise, but usually not in that order. He likes to golf, but is not any good. He likes to read books his children haven’t colored in. James likes spending uninterrupted time with his wife, throwing the football with his oldest son, playing board games with his middle child, and spoiling his only girl.
Favorite Sport: Looking for restaurants that offer free kids meals. A close second is college football or a baseball game on a warm spring day.
Favorite Teams: The University of Michigan or whomever Ohio State is playing. The Detroit Lions and Tigers.
Sports Hero: James has always loved Andre Agassi- especially when he started wearing hair like James.
Favorite Sports Memory: Watching Justin Verlander pitch a no hitter and seeing Tim Biakabutuka run for 313 yards in a Michigan upset of Ohio State in 1995.
Sports Dream: “Its a toss up. I would love to see another U of M game against Ohio State with my Dad. A U.S. Open night tennis match in Flushing Meadows, NY. Or watch the Lions in the Super Bowl…if they ever make it to the Super Bowl…preferably before I die.”
