I like to be around hard workers because I’m a hard worker myself. So being around those type of guys like yourself, just inspires you and makes you want to come to work every day and give you that motivation to keep on pushing and keep doing what you do.”

Clayton gives thanks to his faith in god and his teachers for where he is today.

I know that I always come last and my teachers are doing everything they can for me to get me where I am today. And god has truly been there at every step of the way, and I can’t thank him enough.
