On the resemblance to his father: “Over time, I’ve realized my father is still very much alive through me. I recognize these little parts of myself that are clearly inherited from him. It’s more than just my athleticism, although I do owe him that. But it’s also just the way I walk. We have the same stride. Or my posture when I sit. Little mannerisms like that. As you get older, that’s the stuff you notice. My voice is starting to sound more like him. It shocks my sister sometimes when we get on the phone. But I kind of love that. I really treasure the parts of myself that are clearly from him.”
