He is the founder of the Professional Coaching Diploma Program (PCD). Brent has been a member of the U.S. National Team, competed for Ohio State University, and represented the United States in the 1995 World University Games in Japan. He is still the only man to ever score a perfect 10.0 on vault at the USA Championships!
