Mainstreamed in 3rd grade, he continued to soar, even when his dad was killed in a car accident. Rob demonstrated courage, commitment, spirit, sensitivity. He is currently an instructional assistant at a local high school and has been a season ticket holder for the Cardinals since 2007 season & a fan since 1993. Rob created an Arizona Cardinals group on Facebook called AZ BirdGang Nation back in February 2015. The group now has over 11,500 members and growing each day. Rob's enthusiasm also carries over at work. Students and staff all know him as the biggest Cardinal fan on campus. Every season Rob treats every Cardinals Game Day as a holiday. He brings a lot of passion to the Cardinals fan base.
