He’s the Rangers’ biggest fan and the personification of school spirit. Read on to learn all about our favorite forest ranger.
Your name is rather unique. Tell me the story behind it.
It alludes to my background as a forest ranger, a job that calls for being on the move constantly to uphold the law and protect the environment. It is also a nod to Regis University’s history of movement, first from Las Vegas, New Mexico, where it was founded in 1877, to Morrison, Colorado, to its current location in northwest Denver. These days, you’ll find me roamin’ the sidelines and stands at home Athletics events.
When is your birthday?
Nov. 1, 1921. But I’ve been told I’m young at heart.
What’s your favorite sport? I can’t just pick one. Baseball, basketball, cross-country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball and volleyball, in no particular order.
Do you have any famous friends?
Well, Thunder (Broncos’ mascot) and Rocky (Nuggets’ mascot) and I go way back. These days I am proud to rub elbows with Brady Bergeson and Molly Marrin, our new basketball coaches. You’re going to be hearing a lot of good things about these two, and one word in particular: talented!
What’s your hat size?
I’m told I look good in blue. Well, gold, too. It’s a toss up.
What do you love most about Regis?
OK, serious moment. Regis is my family; there’s a genuine sense of community. Everyone here is accepted, valued and encouraged.
I’m a man of eclectic tastes, but some items that top my list: Finals Breakfast bacon, a good bell pepper from the community garden, Claver Hall sushi and cotton candy from the “Cotton Candy Man” (aka criminology associate professor Don Lindley). Also, you can never go wrong with a game day hot dog.
#RangerUp and see all that Regis Athletics have to offer.
