Third-Time Competitor Shaw Warns: "Take Everything in Stride"

Tony Shaw, installer/technician for Restoration Auto Glass in New Brighton, Minn., will travel to Las Vegas next week to compete for the third time in the Auto Glass Technician Olympics (AGTO). For first-time competitors, Shaw offers this advice: "Try to relax, and take everything in stride."

Shaw, who has been installing glass for ten years, says right now he's simply running through the steps of the competition on each installation he completes.

"It's nothing too out of the ordinary," he says.

Shaw and his wife, Amanda, have two children, Tyler, 16 months, and Keira, 6 months.

In his spare time, Shaw enjoys riding motorcycles and ATVs, and spending time with his family.

The AGTO is in its fourth year and is co-sponsored by the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and AGRR magazine.
