I am a former college assistant coach as well as a former head high school coach who has experienced success at each level. During each coaching opportunity I worked with competitive and dedicated basketball players who committed themselves to the process of getting better, and through that process have go on to positively impact their basketball programs. I have been coaching, teaching, and training athletes since my undergraduate years in college.Since becoming a player development coach and starting EYG Basketball I have been able to work with some of the most impactful people or companies in player development such as The Point Guard College (PGC Basketball), Mike Lee, and Ganon Baker.
