Drawing from a dynamic and versatile collegiate sport experience and education, I look forward to returning to skill development training with student-athletes from elementary to high school. I’ve served The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University Men’s Basketball programs in various roles and I believe I’ve accumulated great knowledge and insight that will make your student-athlete a better basketball player and a better person.
My two years as a walk-on for Coach Rick Barnes (2013-2015) and my summer and fall experience with Coach Shaka Smart (2015) at The University of Texas at Austin exposed me to a multitude of coaching philosophies, player relationship principles, leadership styles, and practice/training strategies. I actively engaged with strength and conditioning coaches Todd Wright and Daniel Roose, as well as, Coach Barnes and Coach Bryce Crawford (now an assistant at UMBC) to learn the various ways to train and develop the body and on-court shooting and skill work.
Within the past two years serving Coach Billy Kennedy and his staff, I progressed from a summer volunteer with camps, strength and conditioning workouts with Coach Darby Rich, and purposeful interactions with players on and off the court in my first year, to the graduate assistant this past season. Throughout, I contributed to offseason/pre-season practice plan development and individual workout instructions. Moreover, my greatest skill development impact came through freshman TJ Starks improvement, as well as redshirt players who will be relied upon this upcoming season.
Ultimately, my penchant for skill development has guided me to observe, study, and learn from some of the top skill development trainers in the nation. I will give your student-athlete a challenging and fun skill development experience!
