** Script — Your past success is the enemy of your God-given potential.
** Block “M” with a “96” behind it. The “M” is for Michigan; the Michigan team his sophomore year was the 96th Michigan team in history.

Lower right arm:


** Skyline of downtown Columbus: Where he was raised; significant part of his life. The “C” is the logo of minor league team, the Columbus Clippers.

** Little kid sitting on a basketball. It doesn’t look like Burke, but he says it’s him when people ask.
** Script — Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare.

Left shoulder:


** Proverbs 3:13 — “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding.”
** Owl flying over cupped hands filled with water.
