About Darius

I am a former head high school basketball coach that has decided to do private lessons because I enjoy coaching the game of basketball. I have been a head basketball coach for 9 years. This is the first year I have not coached, so I am eager to teach young people all that I know. I decided to get out of coaching in the public school sector because there is so much that goes with coaching in public schools that most people don't know about. I believe a good coach teaches a player much more than basketball. A good coach teaches life skills through the game of basketball that they can use throughout one's life. No one is perfect, but everyone can give a perfect effort.

I played college basketball on a full basketball scholarship at Midwestern State University. I know what it takes to reach the next level, and I know how to help get kids there that are willing to put in the work. I still train some of my players that are in college and playing professionally overseas. I believe that great players must have a mental edge, this can only be obtained through tough practices that push players to their limits. Each player is different, so all players must be coached different. My training philosophy is that you must take pride in the fundamentals of the game and pay attention to detail in the process. I am also a certified strength and conditioning coach(CSCS) with a BS in Kinesiology, so I can also incorporate strength training if needed. I truly believe talk is cheap so I look forward to showing you what I know.
