As an above average aggressive high school athlete, my love for basketball allowed me the opportunity to travel Nationally both in high school and college, receive numerous awards and outwork most opponents on the court. This platform became my stage to excel and become a successful scholastic athlete, which continues as a coach. As a high school athlete, I received the Who’s Who Athlete, scholastic recognition, 3 HS Conference Titles, 3 State Conference appearances quarter, semifinals and finals. 3 All-State Player awards 1st and 2nd team and Honorable Mention awards.
