My passion in life and ideal career for the future would be to be a full time basketball trainer. I simply love and cherish everything about it. First of all, I enjoy watching young players that want to work hard at their craft get better and better every session of training simply because that’s how I was when I was younger. I can show young people that maybe right now I’m not the best player around, but if I give 110% effort every time I step into a gym, I’ll get there one day. I think its important to show young people that progress takes time and the journey of a 1,000 miles starts with a single step. Also, if I can positively affect the life of at least a handful of young men and women through training, then that’s making the world a better place to live. I do this through not only showing them ways to be better basketball players, but stress to them the importance of hard work, dedication, and staying focused on the bigger picture. Maybe one day I can turn a kid off of drugs and alcohol and turn them on to basketball. The possibilities are endless. A ball can truly change the world!
