Kevin's love of sports began at an early age playing football, basketball and baseball. He continued playing those three sports at Liberty High School, where he also developed a passion for coaching. He coached beginning in 1984 until 2012. Nothing gave Kevin more joy during those years than coaching his sons. He also refereed football and basketball for Liberty Parks and Recreation. Kevin was a member of the Liberty High School "Chain Gang" since 2002. He refereed junior/high school basketball through MSHSAA for the past 10 years, including Special Olympics basketball, and was a member of the GKCOA (referee association). If you didn't find Kevin in the stands at Liberty, you could find him on the court.
