Inscription.

Growing up in Parryville, Carl learned valuable life lessons by playing. In high school, he was the javelin state champion; at Penn State he became an All-American in Track & Field and is the record holder for javelin in the college Big Ten Conference. Carl is impacting the lives of youth as a physical education teacher. In both 2002 & 2011, Carl earned the title of RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion (golf). This exceptional world champion was inducted in 2012 into the Carbon County Hall of Fame.

Parryville residents have the chance to be great...
and it starts with our "drive!"
