Etcetera: Would play baseball if not for water polo... supports the Klaus Barth foundation for cancer (Barth was his former coach and is an idol)... best things about water polo are that the game is in the water, and the friends you make out of the water... got into water polo because he lived near the beach and was involved with swimming, then a friend started playing the sport, and so did he.
