How long have you coached basketball?  I have coached basketball for 26 years. I started coaching boys basketball at Southern High School.

What motivates you to coach? I love working with kids and teaching the game of basketball! I also love the competition! When you finish playing, there is still a competitive drive within you that needs to be filled. I have found coaching to be the answer for me.

How do you use basketball to disciple your players? I want my players to grow in their relationship with Christ. We have a devotional every Monday as well as daily prayers. I believe it is important for my players to know they can trust me and I always stay true to my word.

What is your biggest goal in building the girls basketball program? To always give it our best effort and get the program back to State.We have a great group of girls who can accomplish that this year. They need to believe in each other and work hard to prove to the doubters!When people watch us play, I hope they come away with "that team gives it their all every single possession!" If we do that, we will achieve our goals!Play with class and dignity!

What makes you laugh out loud? I love laughing so it doesn't take much. I have a good time with pretty much everyone. I will even laugh at bad jokes!

What motivates you to coach? I love the game of basketball- love teaching- then I get to add (all the time) Jesus!!

What lessons has coaching taught you about your faith? I continue to be reminded of two verses—Colossians 3:23 and Galatians 1:10. It’s not about me and my life it is for Him (in ALL I do).

How do you use basketball to disciple your players? I believe it fits perfectly. In hoops, it takes the individual to work on their skill, just like we have to be connected to HIM daily through our individual – prayer- devotion– bible reading. Then as the individual is strengthened/improved, they are a better fit for community (team) and can hold each other accountable and remind each other what is important.

Who are or have been your spiritual mentors? There are too many to list but two come to mind...my relationship with Steve Wigginton and Doc Hunt.

What do you hope to accomplish in your first season at CAL? I hope that the boys learn to “Rise Up” above the world’s expectations and trappings for athletes. To learn that they are better Christian young men for playing this great game for a great school – CAL.
