    Loved your interview with Fox Business on June 16th!

  4. You looked very handsome and your mother looked very beautiful on the red carpet. Your mother was the perfect person to bring because she did a great job raising you. There are so many reasons “Why” your fans adore you. However, I can only speak from myself and I think that you are a perfect role model and inspiration to many. You’re a very respectable and humble person who never let his success and achievements go to his head. You are not conceited
    and cocky. You respect women and treat them as if they are your sisters. I knew you from the beginning of your career and your still the same humble, quiet, down to earth, nice guy. You never let the fame or money get to you and I think that is because you never tried to forget where you came from. I think that is one of your greatest qualities because you are not one of those perpetrators who act is if they were born into wealth when most of them wasn’t.

    You are still the same person that I use to see around who never had alot of different women and that only told me that you are not a womanizer or player who uses women. It told me that you are a “decent, confident man” who don’t have to prove anything to anybody. I guess that is “Why” some of your fans adore you. Everything happens for a reason and all the success and happiness that you are having now in your life is only the beginning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I’m glad that your youth summer camp turned out great today. I wish the weather was better on July 11 , but the kids still had 1 special day to spend at your camp. Atleast the children could look up to a Role Model like you and also grow up to be positive and successful people. Congratulations, once again Shawn. So today is your day out there and you got the “Key To the City”. That is so fantastic! I’m so happy for you. All of this couldn’t have happen to a nicer person. You came along way from AZ to a “Championship” and you deserve it all. I know you are very busy accomplishing more goals and enjoying this special moment in your life. I’m enjoying it too Shawn! You know if we were back in AZ we would be celebrating at the club.
