TJ’s battle began as a child. As an adolescent he was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, but he did not stop his stride. He started bowling at the age of 5 years old. He began with the Union Baptist Church Bantam League, then graduated to the Prep League and finally to the Major -Junior -Senior -League. His former coaches were astonished at his competitiveness especially against the older youth in the league. TJ also bowled in the Village Youth League at Village Lanes in Durham.
