Wanting to Pursue a long-term coaching position with a stable, well-established organization.
Experience 20+ yrs.
I have been involved in basketball as a player, coach, scout, athletic director for over 20 years. I attended Arapahoe High School in Littleton, CO and was a two-year starter and received "All State" and honorable mention "All American" honors. After being heavily recruited, I accepted a full-ride scholarship to the College of Great Falls, MT. After a year at CGF, I then transferred to Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, CO. Following my time at CMU, I had an opportunity to play over-seas. As a collegiate and professional player, I Received various awards as well as experienced a multitude of individual and team successes.
Following my playing career, I pursued coaching and was a successful freshman, junior varsity and varsity coach in the Denver Metro area. These schools ranged from 2A to 5A classifications. I was also an assistant coach and player development coach at the collegiate level. I have experienced a multitude of district, regional and state tournament successes. In addition, many of my former players have received college scholarships in both academics and athletics.
Currently, I provide private coaching sessions with a national organization called, "Coach Up." I am also a Head Coach with Colorado Premier Basketball Club. Colorado Premier is one of only 32 Nike sponsored clubs in the world. Furthermore, I am a business partner at The Combine Courts, here in Colorado Springs. I also coach Varsity and Jr. Varsity Boys’ Basketball at Fountain Valley School. FVS is a private, co-educational independent college preparatory school for students in the 9th through 12th grades. It competes in the Colorado High School Activities Association's Black Forest League.
I consider myself a "basketball nerd." I love teaching the fundamentals, the mechanics, as well as the mental preparation it takes to become a successful student-athlete. My program(s) have the philosophy that we play hard every day to help guide us towards a high level of success. My philosophy can be summed up in seven words, "Play Hard, Play Smart and Play Together." In addition, you will not find a more experienced coach who breaks it down to a point where it becomes second nature. I want my players to play, and not think about HOW to play. I take pride in how I equip each player with the needed skills to accomplish individual, team and life successes.
