to see his son play the game he loved.
At the Crossroads
To understand the enormity of the decision Bobby was about to make, you must first understand that farming was the only thing he'd ever known. He grew up right here in Dinwiddie County and worked side-by-side with his grandfather on the family farm from the time he was a very young boy. Rising before dawn and working well into nightfall was the norm for Bobby. But when Taylor earned a spot on that traveling team, Bobby knew he had to make a drastic change in order to be more involved in Taylor's life.
It was then that Bobby decided to give up farming. Everyone who knew him was shocked by his decision, but when Bobby found himself sitting in the bleachers at Taylor's next game, he knew he'd made the right choice. He ended up traveling with the team frequently and was able to watch Taylor play in 11 different states, all before he went on to play college ball at VCU.

Bobby's decision to entirely change the course of his professional life was, without a doubt, monumental. But it wasn't as difficult of a decision as you might think.
