"After I started, it just blew up, people making fan pages of me,” explained Josh.
Through his film, he sparked the interest of big name teams from all around, resulting in numerous school visits with his father Marty.
"It's funny; you have a perception of what they would be like and then when you meet them they're like humble, down to earth guys,” said Marty. “It threw me.”
