    I haven't read a lot about Aaron, and I found this article very interesting. If it already was posted elsewhere on GS, my apologies.

    Best of luck to him at Worlds.

    Thanks for posting the article. It is nice to see an athlete that embraces and is proud of their religious affliations.

    Good Luck to Max and all US athletes at Worlds and Jr. Worlds.

    Gotta love a young man with good manners [that earned him a compliment from Hersh, no less ]:

    Philip Hersh ‏@olyphil
    Re-listening to interview with @MaxTAaron. He gets PCS scores of all 10.0 for politeness. Must have said "yes, sir" or "yes, ma'am" 20 times
    1:08 PM - Feb 27, 2013

    [Hersh seems to be referring to Aaron's pre-Worlds media call on Feb 26. Highlights tweeted by @USFigureSkating:
    . @MaxTAaron says he has worked with Pasquale Camerlengo since the U.S. Champs on choreo.
    . @MaxTAaron excited about the challenge of back-loading his programs with jumps. It has paid off.
    . @MaxTAaron called Four Continents an 'Eye-opener' and says he 'knows he can handle the pressure'
    . @MaxTAaron said he's working towards three quads in free, but noted, he could "shoot for the stars" and try for four eventually.

    I think this will become the standard for men's figure skating. Stand around for two and a half minutes, then do four quads.
