| Adam Sorgi A Short Road To Success
Luck may be one reason for Sorgi's success but natural
ability is more likely the cause. Sorgi comes from an
athletic family. His sister, Erica, was a top diver for
Stanford. "I'm definitely the second-best athlete
in the family," laughed
Sorgi. "She's the best competitor I know." Sorgi also
takes advantage of Erica's expertise when it comes to
sports."I know I can turn to her if I'm in a tough situation," stated
Sorgi. "She taught me at a young age to work, and she
keeps my spirits up."
