First words that pop into your head when you hear “dad”?

Role model. A child should never have to look outside his own home to find one.

Favorite memory with your son:

I was the first person to look Hank in the eyes the day he was born.

What did you learn about being a father from your own dad?

Being a dad doesn't just mean being strong, masculine, and tough. It's also about knowing how to love.

Kendra, what makes Hank such a great father?

There's no other man that I would want my son to be like. That means respecting women, saying “please” and “thank you,” and of course being a damn great athlete!
