My fondest memory is my first pitching win at Birmingham-Southern my freshman year.

My father (Vic Harvey) was the biggest influence on me during my time at Lipscomb. He encouraged me to attend a Christian University and supported me during some rough patches during my 4 years at Lipscomb.

The friendships I developed living on the seventh floor of High Rise dorm.

I had an opportunity to play baseball in the SEC, but my father encouraged me to attend David Lipscomb. I now understand why he wanted me to attend Lipscomb. The Christian education I received and the relationships I developed while at Lipscomb are greater than any experience I would have had at an SEC school.

Dr. Kent Johnson. I developed a passion for health and fitness because of his teachings and encouragement. I live that passion each day.
