As a born again Christian, husband, father, and coach, I believe in giving back and placing the needs of others over my own. Every young person should have someone they can confide in to help prepare them for life’s challenges. 

Basketball is a great tool to help build confidence, show them how to approach and deal with obstacles, the importance of being a good friend and teammate, and pursue excellence in whatever they do.
