Being an all district player in HISD's historic 18-5A in the mid-90's and playing for the great Larry Hall, Kenneth "Juice" Williams and Anthony Goldwire have taught me that basketball is just a tool for character molding.

Being an all district player in HISD's historic 18-5A in the mid-90's and playing for the great Larry Hall, Kenneth "Juice" Williams and Anthony Goldwire have taught me that basketball is just a tool for character molding. My basketball background stretches from Houston, to Missouri to Bulgaria, and the one constant for success for myself and others has been faith, hard work and caring for the betterment of others. It is apparent in today's society that talent allows one certain privileges but the character of a player always outshines their athletic prowess. Time and time again, great talents have been silenced because of their lack of good judgment or character. I believe that basketball and youth training starts with the character of the athlete. Through my time as coach for youth, ages 5- 25, I've always been applauded for my methods of coaching the character of the player which molds the individual player to be great in sports on and off the court.
I specialize in teaching the nuances of all the positions. Simple adjustments mentally can turn a role player into focal point of the offense. Posts being able to accept double teams and make the correct pass out of the double team, point guards being able to dictate the flow of the game and the dreaded shot selection of shooting guards can be the difference between being collegiate prospects and being unable to make the cut. I can promise an significant change in the attitude of your player and the production, ON AND OFF the court in a month period.
