Born believes that his accomplishments would not have been possible without the foundation of his faith. Missionaries in Zambia convinced his grandfather to allow his father to attend a mission school to learn about the love of Jesus.

Born is humbled and honored to be a part of this legacy and works to continue the legacy.
