Bruce knows first-hand the attitude and skills required to overcome physical and mental challenges. At age 18, Bruce was partially paralyzed in an automobile accident. Although doctors warned that he might never walk again, he left the hospital a few months later under his own power. After a two-year struggle to regain full use of his body, Bruce went on to become a two-time state champion in Racquetball and played on a state championship softball team. He later served as head baseball coach and assistant football coach at Van Buren High School and the men’s and women’s tennis coach at The University of Findlay.
Today, Bruce is President of The Winner’s Edge, a peak performance consulting firm in Findlay, Ohio where he resides with his wife, Mary and two children, Brian and Allison. He is a nationally known presenter on motivational tactics and mental toughness training for school, sports, and business, using high-energy, interactive techniques to inspire and delight his audiences.
Bruce loves speaking to educators, parents, students, athletes, and business professionals and has conducted over 1700 presentations over the past 10 years. Bruce has addressed virtually every group imaginable at dinner meetings, school assemblies, conferences, seminars, and clinics-almost every scenario possible.
