Find Out How A Single 23-Year-Old Became A Grandfather In Just 7 Days
The Aussie Way
Connolly isn’t from America. He grew up in Queensland, Australia. Growing up Down Under instilled a great sense of adventure into Connolly. Queensland is an Australian state located on the northeast side of the continent. You can see the Great Barrier Reef right offshore.
He’s always out looking for the next journey to embark on, but even he wasn’t prepared for what was to come. An average college student’s life was about to lead in a new direction.
The Hard-Working Athlete
Connolly was a dedicated student-athlete. He competed in track and field for the University of the Sunshine Coast. Anyone who has run track competitively knows the strenuous amount of hours that you must put in to stay in competition shape.
For student-athletes, it’s already hard enough to balance school work and practice, so imagine becoming a father and grandfather. He couldn’t juggle everything, so, unfortunately, running had to take a back seat for Connolly. He is very mature for such a young man.
