My passion is training others in basketball.  I have an 11 year old son and love to work with kids.  It’s amazing to see both their skill level and their love of the game grow over time.  I am very happy to be part of ATTACK Basketball Academy, as it is a professional organization where all of the coaches genuinely care about the youth they train and coach.
