When I was younger, my dad played professional basketball in England, and I got a chance to also play in one of the top youth leagues over there which was a great experience. I played High School ball in Florida, which is very competitive. As well as played College ball at every level. My favorite place was probably Coastal Georgia Community college in Brunswick, GA where I was at the top of my game as far as being successful.

Have you made mistakes in your life that has affected your career? If you would like to go into detail please explain.
Well, the one mistake I would say is that I didn’t work out as hard as I should have in high school to be successful. I depended on my talent to carry me instead of working on my game more. I think that is what separated me from going to big time D-1 school instead of going to an NAIA school.

I just finished my college career and am currently pursuing an opportunity to play overseas in England.

To play in England for at least five years and be able to share the gospel with my fellow teammates and others that I come into contact with.

Since I was little, I’ve always wanted to make it the league. But, I would be just as happy to make it to England and play there to end my career.

Yes and No. I wish I was a little bit taller (even though I’m 6’4), because it seems like it’s easier for taller players to make it than your average heighters.

Yes I have. As a senior high school I was a All-County selection. In Junior college, I was named one of the top JUCO Sophomores in the country by JUCO talent expert Rick Ball. Also, while I was senior at Lee University, I was named the Conference player of the week twice.
