I am writing this Bio on Thursday, October 19, 2017.

I have always wanted to and dreamed of coaching basketball (boys or girls) at my alma mater.

I have been waiting for more than 15 years of my teaching career at WHS to be here with you guys now.

Whitwell Basketball has had several coaches to come through here during my time, but now we are here.

Thank you Ben Barker (my former student and my friend) for this opportunity. 

This means a lot to me.

Can I get a "GO BIG RED".........GO BIG RED!!!
