The first time I ever played fantasy football, my quarterback was Warren Moon, and I was 9 years old. Since then, I've played in and won countless fantasy football leagues in a variety of different scoring systems.

In 2014, I won over $12,000 playing fantasy by placing 1st or 2nd in 40% of my leagues.

I paid for graduate school with NFL spread betting in 2009.

I have zero debt, and a $30,000 banked deposit at my sports book ready for my use.

Want to learn my secrets? My courses - Sports Betting Simplified and Fantasy Football - How to Play, and How to Win are live on Udemy!

My full-time job is as a high school math teacher, so I know how to teach and how to analyze the statistics. The NFL, spread betting and fantasy sports are my passion, and I can't wait to share it with you!
