“Obviously everybody’s path is different. Some people always had it, they made it to where they are and they’re successful. Some people had to go through things and grind through things to get there. I’m kind of really thankful for my journey. I think my journey is what made me the underdog.”-Bobby Portis



Being the underdog...

has always been the main motivation in life for Bobby. Raised in the Little Rock, Arkansas with his mother and three brothers, he is a success story of how perseverance and hard work pays off.  He is and will always be committed to being the #UNDERDOG
