He has worked with Adidas & Nike specialty camps for almost 10 years and is activity sought out for guidance when it comes to youth athletics. One of his most significant accomplishments has been coaching AAU, where his team went on a 42 game winning streak (spanning a 3 year time frame) in AAU league play.
