About Benjamin

I grew up in a small school in Caracas, Venezuela where I played middle school, and all four years of high school basketball as a starter. I enjoyed playing on a small team because more attention was given to each player. It was also an international Christian school where discipline and full effort was not only required but enforced. My senior year I was named team captain and because our coach was also the school director I was put in a position to coach and mold the players under me because of our coach's busy schedule. I love coaching from a personal position. It helps to know the individual you are coaching in order to motivate properly.
I played shooting guard and point guard. My primary skills are shooting from the perimeter, passing, fundamental ball handling, and defensive concepts.
I believe in discipline and will not accept any unprofessional behavior (language, actions, and undermining authority). I want to coach basketball, but being able to play basketball is worthless without being able to conduct yourself as a gentleman/woman.
Basketball is just a game, but it can shape and mold people. I believe the way you conduct yourself on the court reflects real life values. I see basketball as a way to teach individuals the importance of self-respect, respect for authority, discipline, working with others, and how to be professional off and on the court.
