Personal

Tom enjoys skeet-shooting. His most memorable sporting achievement is winning the Canadian Henley Dash for Cash in back-to-back years. He chose rowing as a way to be competitive and stay in shape. He lists all of the people who ever have, or currently do, row for Michigan Crew, as well as the Michigan coaching staff, as the most influential people in his sporting career. Tom said they are the epitome of collegiate athletics and truly embody the spirit of competition. His personal heroes are his brother, Greg, Erik Hult and Patrick Kington. He thanks his parents, Donna and Larry, for their unwavering support.
