My name is Eric McDade.  I am a native of Auburn and a 2005 graduate of AHS, where I played basketball on the state championship team as a senior.  After high school, I received an academic scholarship to attend Auburn University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in communication in 2010.  Upon graduating college, I began my career working in management and sales.  I currently work for a local State Farm agent as an account  representative.  
My wife Melisa and I have two children, Jeremiah and Meriah.  My hobbies include coaching youth sports, reading, and traveling.  The greatest mentors in my life were my high school basketball coach Frank Tolbert and my uncle Donald Baker. I’m excited to be a part of this program because I want to help young men realize their potential and achieve their dreams.
