Here’s their story:

Jesse and I got married last Saturday.  We met back in 2011 when she joined our football team (cell block 4).  I was on the team since fall of 2009.  After she joined the team, a mutual friend brought her to ninth ward before the season started to introduce her to everyone.  It was a Friday and I was hungover from Thursday kickball, but for some reason I knew I had to go.  That’s the night I met her, and it was love at first sight.  She met all of my friends (we have several teams in several leagues, including kickball, dodgeball, etc. – which she also played intermittently over the past few years).  So here we are – married for 5 days, and all of our friends from Zog were at the wedding too!  In fact, Shaun Saunders (who I met when our team first formed in 2009) was one of my groomsman and gave the toast.  He’s my best friend to this day, and I was the best man in his wedding in April – so as you can tell, ZogSports has had a huge impact on my life!

ZogSports is not just about playing sports, it’s about bringing together teammates and soulmates.

Thanks for sharing your story with us.  We wish you the best!
