Bio

Underhill is an insurance agent/owner of Hometown Insurance Agency, Junction City Mayor, Chamber of Commerce Board Chair, Junction City Housing Authority Board Chair, and Metropolitan Planning Organization Board Chair. Insurance has been his career for almost a decade. He an independent agent with his employment at Central Insurance Agency, and now at Hometown Insurance Agency where they offer protection for farm, business, life, auto, crop, and home. Hometown Insurance Agency was a recent venture started January 1, 2020 when Underhill's previous supervisor purchased the insurance business and contracted Underhill with his own customers.

With the exception of their college years when he and his wife went away, the Underhills have lived their whole lives in Junction City and are now raising their two sons in their hometown. After college, the area called them back, said Underhill.

One of his volunteering endeavors is serving as president of the Junction City Community Baseball Club that sponsors the JC Brigade, a summer collegiate wood bat baseball team. They play in Rathert Stadium which Junction City helped to restore to its original 1937 luster and is now known as one of the finest and most historic ballparks in all of Kansas. Although they had to suspend play for 2020, they were previously Mid-Plains League Cowdin Cup Champions for 2018 and 2019. Underhill also holds several state powerlifting titles and competes in strongman competitions. In September, he impressively pulled a Peterbilt truck in the Midwest Strongest Man 2020 competition.
