Off the court, Craig has been involved in the tennis communities that he has lived in and been an active volunteer. He is a four time President of the Dallas Professional Tennis Association and as a result of his presence in the Dallas tennis community, he was awarded in 2007 the Dallas Tennis Association’s “Pro Volunteer of the Year.” In 2010, Craig was once again honored for his years of service to the state of Texas as he was awarded the USPTA Texas Division “Professional of the Year.” Through Craig’s skills on and off the court he has helped raise hundreds of thousands (quite possibly millions) of dollars for charity events whether playing as a pro-am participant, generously donating to charity events or organizing and running tournaments on behalf of charitable organizations. Currently, Craig is volunteering with the USPTA Texas Division as the Conference Chairperson, since 2009, and is also serving as 1st Vice-President, since 2013.
His greatest accomplishment is being married since August, 1983 to his wife Cindy whom he met while playing collegiate tennis in Utah at Weber State University. Craig and Cindy currently have four children – three daughters and one son. In his spare time, Craig enjoys all sports and is a proud 4th generation member of the Chickasaw Indian Nation with his great, great grandfather serving as “Chief” of the Chickasaw nation in the 1830’s.
Craig really enjoys the “Great Game of Tennis” and is appreciative of all the benefits it has afforded him on and off the court.
