It’s funny how things work out. I’ve never personally met Dave. He was actually on “rep flow,” and the rep showed me some of his footy and that’s that. Rep flow turned into Team Manager flow, to a TransWorld video Check Out. I have no stories to tell you about him yet, so his footy will have to suffice. He’s a nice kid who gets his sh-t done, and for that, what more could one ask? Take a look at this East Coast killer. The sun rises in the East!—Dave Ashley
