The eldest of three siblings, Tom Degnan grew up outside of Cherry Hill in Southern New Jersey. A self-proclaimed sports fanatic, he was on the track team in high school and briefly considered trying out his athleticism at the collegiate level while attending Notre Dame, but he ended up majoring in finance, instead. "There was a short window— very, very short window — where I thought about actually walking on to the track team for hurdles," he tells Digest. "You realize that all the kids who play varsity sports are bigger, faster, stronger than you so that wasn't going to fly!"
