His first instructor was his older brother, who was very well established as a player in the pool community. Rabbit was able to listen to the instruction and apply what was important in the game. Not just to win, but what it took to be not only a good winner but also a good sport when on the other end.

Personal Quote: "They will remember you
longer than they will remember the score!"
While serving in the US Air Force, a particular game of choice was 9-ball. In order to win, you had to catch your opponent on three fouls in a row. This brought a whole new way of thinking to the game. As a result, Rabbit is now very effective at defense. It just happened by chance but was a very worth-while effort!
Running tournaments was a regular thing for him while in the military and after so many years, he is very good at setting up tournament brackets and running tournaments in a fair and timely manner. He has been Tournament Director in several state tournaments in Florida. In another local league based out of Jacksonville, Rabbit assisted by designing their biggest tournament of the year. From start to finish, including building the tournament bracket, dates & times, and even table assignments to evenly distribute play on all tables. The entire process went smooth without a hitch. This was the best operated tournament for that league in recent past. Now the BLA has his ability & leadership!
In addition to Rabbit's love for the game, he has always had a genuine interest in helping others learn the game as well. It is not uncommon to find him in the pool hall offering tips to players in effort to assist them in their growth in pool. You are always welcome to ask him for help and if he knows, he will make himself available.
The book he teaches out of is Robert Byrne's New Standard Book of Pool & Billiards. Rabbit says, in his opinion, this is one of the very best books ever written on the subject.
