1. Modern Day Beethoven! Yup, he’s a musician, too. Christian learned how to play the piano when he was in 8th grade, and wound up winning a talent show with a cash prize shortly after. #keys
  2. A real-life hero. While on a hike in his hometown last year, Christian witnessed a fellow hiker fall off one of the rocks. He and his friends raced over to tend to the 72-year-old man while they waited for an ambulance, and were credited with saving his life! Now THAT’S an MVP!
  3. Like father, like son. Christian’s dad, Ed, played in the NFL for 13 seasons as a Wide Receiver. Christian credits his dad with teaching him how to be a good pro. We’d have to say he did a great job!
  4. He didn’t even stretch though! Christian started playing basketball when he was 6 years old and continued until college. The video of him completing a windmill dunk with EASE that went viral this spring makes a little more sense now. But seriously, what can’t he do?
  5. Just like any 23-year-old, Christian likes to spend his off days watching TV, fishing, and playing video games. You can find him doing anything that gets him off his feet when he’s not on the field. Sounds like the perfect day off!

I created Fangirl Sports Network as a place for female sports fans to follow their favorite teams with content and coverage that speaks directly to females. It started with one and then eight and now 32 NFL Fangirls and 15 NBA Fangirls.
