Drew was born and raised in Falcon, Colorado, just outside of Colorado Springs. He grew up going on elk hunts with his father and grandfather and went fishing occasionally, but sports was a priority for him growing up. Drew attended Mitchell High School in Colorado Springs where he played football and baseball, then attended King University in Bristol, Tennessee, and played starting shortstop for three years.
“It wasn’t until after I was done playing college baseball and moved back to Colorado Springs that I found my passion again for our public lands,” he said. “I wouldn’t be who I am without the influence of both my father and grandfather. My father is my best friend and someone that I will never be able to thank enough for what he has done to help me find the outdoors again after my playing days. Thank you Dad!”
“I am a year round outdoorsman here in Colorado,” Drew added. He hunts turkeys in the spring and spends summers scouting and fishing high alpine lakes. “Picked up fly-fishing recently and fell in love even though I’m definitely still a beginner,” he says. Drew also hunts elk, antelope, mule deer, whitetails and bear with bow and rifle along with chasing waterfowl. “Ice fishing has become one of our favorite activities as a family,” he said.
