Director of Fun and Fanatics

A fixture at Menace home games, Maniac puts smiles on fans' faces and pumps energy into the best crowds in the Premier Development League.

What I do for the Menace:
Greet my friends as they come to the game to cheer our favorite team on to victory. Visit the great fans during the game. Celebrate our goals. Make sure everyone has a great time. Thank everyone for attending the game by seeing them on the field for an autograph session after the game.


The best things about my job:

My friends! Each and every person who attends the game makes my “job” so much fun and worth coming out on a hot summer night to have a great time! I especially love The Human Tunnel at the beginning of the game – come join me welcome the players to the field!

Soccer background:
Have you seen my head??? ‘Nuff said! 

Favorite sports teams besides the Menace:
Iowa Hawkeyes (Herky), Iowa State Cyclones (Cy), Drake Bulldogs (Spike), UNI Panthers (TC), but most of all – Iowa Energy (Surge!), Iowa Cubs (Cubbie Bear!), Des Moines Buccaneers (Winger), Iowa Wild (Crash) … and that other futbol team, Iowa Barnstormers (Ace & Billy)

Mrs. Maniac and my two mini-maniacs! Seeing my friends outside of a Menace game. Using a Kum & Go tire inflator for proper air pressure. Bouncing from one public event to another. Rolling with the flow.

Favorite movie:
“Cast Away” with Tom Hanks – my cousin Wilson co-starred
