Haws said he was thrilled with the back-to-back milestones.

“I’m super excited and I’m happy that we came out with the win and now I’m going to have one of the coolest experiences of my life. I’m excited,” said Haws.

He tweeted that Tyson Ralph Haws was born later on Sunday. His name comes from TJ’s first name, Tyson, and his grandpa Ralph Haws.
