Favorite Activities: Making his daughter laugh, whitewater rafting, being a goof with his family & friends around the fire pit enjoying stories and wine (and maybe a s'more or two).

Will was born in San Jose and moved to Fremont when he was 9 (has been there ever since). He was very ill as a baby and stopped breathing several times but now, hasn't been sick since he was 16 (17 years)! Will married his high school sweetheart. They have been together for 16 years and have a 17 month old daughter. Will used to think he was the Incredible Hulk and moved around the furniture pretending they were cars while watching the old Hulk show with Lou Ferigno. Currently trying to figure out how to masquerade as Jolie Gentry's boyfriend just once to see what it's like to take her out for some ICE CREAM. (Just foolin' guys...maybe :))

Look for an email within the next couple of day asking you for your shirt size. The email will go out to everyone who has registered to date. Also, if you have not yet registered, make sure to include your t-shirt size when registering for the Qualifiers.

If we don't receive an email response from you, you'll get the following t-shirt:
  • If you're male, you'll get a men's large.
  • If you're female, you'll get a women's medium.

Also, there are only 8 days left until the price for competing in the NorCal Qualifiers goes up to $100. It will change to $100 on April 1.

And congratulations to Ly Terrado of CrossFit Vallejo for designing the winning t-shirt logo.
