I coach to have a positive and inspiring impact on a student athlete’s career and life.
Focused with a go-getter attitude. I am a native of Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn New York City and have been a fan of basketball since I was 8 years old. I began studying and playing the game of basketball at the age of 12 and my very first basketball tournament was at the age of 13. I played Forward/Center for Murry Bergtraum High school Boys Varsity in Manhattan, forward for the Borough of Manhattan Community College division 3 junior college in NYC, and have played various adult leagues and tournaments. I’ve been coaching for about 8 years with students ages 9 - 18 years old. My inspiration to coach comes from my love of the game. Coaching means teaching, encouraging, and motivating. My ultimate reward is to have made an impact on a player’s life and for them to succeed in life whether it’s in basketball or in life.
