Thirty (30) years of coaching experience and sixteen (16) years recruiting experience. Strong knowledge of basketball coaching techniques. Excellent communication skills. Very strong interpersonal skills; proven strengths in motivating and working with players. Relentless recruiter with large recruiting contact base.
Giving back is a very important part of why I do what I do. I got into the business of basketball almost by accident. My career began by becoming a volunteer assistant at my old high school Hamilton High. That act of support for my alma mater actually was the first step in my coaching journey. I’ve always taught my players the value of leaving your mark on this planet by giving back to the kids, non-profits, and persons in need. It’s the right thing to do!
When an individual is focused on achieving a given task and acts upon a passion for excellence and enthusiasm, goals can be achieved. When these tasks are achieved with integrity, there is a great sense of respect for an individual. These individuals will possess an awareness of the value of human beings and perseverance. While happiness and peace is different for each individual, fulfillment is when goals are achieved without compromising standards. An even greater fulfillment is when I am able to help others achieve their dreams and goals.
