Jim was late to the dance when it came to tennis. Growing up in Bellaire,

Ohio, Jim’s favorite sports were basketball and especially baseball.

Jim was all-conference on his high school team as a pitcher, 1st baseman,

and outfielder. He was not introduced to tennis until 7th grade and quickly

became addicted to it and wore out many a school wall as finding someone

to play with was a task in and of itself. As a sophomore in college, Jim

decided to try walking on at NAIA Power West Liberty State College and

ended up beating out several scholarship players for a spot in the

starting lineup. Jim stayed for the next 3 years.
