We love this community, and I am ecstatic about the opportunity to mentor the young men who will represent Fishers on the court, in the classroom and in our community.
My vision for the program is to develop high character kids who work hard, put the team first, and become leaders. Our program puts an extreme emphasis on player skill and personal development, and in our program kids will reach their basketball potential and become better young men, leading to on court success as a team.”
