I coach because of the unbelievable impact so many coaches had on me as an athlete. My father, who was a teacher and coach, was at the center of teaching me so much about the game of basketball and the game of life. I was taught about the importance of hard work, discipline, teamwork, handling adversity & success, and so many other positive life lessons. It is my hope that I can have an impact on the student-athletes that I coach.
 
I want to help boys become men of integrity who are responsible, care about their teammates, and help those around them.
In a society that teaches our youth about entitlement and ego, it is my hope that I can help reverse the trend and teach about humility and earning your keep. It is my job to love the athletes I coach and to prepare them for a broken world where things don't always go their way.  And finally,
 
I want to help young men realize that any earthly motivation without having a faith in God puts us on an aimless course that goes nowhere.
We need to first thank God and glorify Him for any earthly success that we have, because He first provided for us.

Pretty simple I coach to help other people.
Growing up I think the most influential people in my life were coaches.
They really helped me when things where not great at home and I hope I can help other young people the way I was guided\mentored.  I also coach because of the camaraderie and and the opportunity to be a part of something that is bigger then yourself.  In life having the chance to be a part of a team and represent the name on the front of your chest is something you will never forget.  Coaching is very rewarding and gives you the opportunity to be a part of a family.
