What is your best high school basketball memory?

Having a career game in the State Tournament at Seattle Center Coliseum in front of “Downtown” Freddy Brown, the SuperSonics great and my idol at the time. He complimented me on having a great game. I knew I was a great player after that encounter.

What impact did your high school coach have on you?

Not enough room on the page to tell it all, but he taught me about work ethic and holding myself to a higher standard than people expected. Helped teach me to carry myself with pride and instilled in me the idea that every decision I make (bad or good) would reflect, not only on me but on my teammates, my city, my school, and my family. Basketball was secondary when it came to him teaching about being a leader.
