“When I look back at my college basketball career I owe a lot of people thanks for my development as a player. One of those individuals is Keith Byrd. Coach Byrd was my summer league basketball coach every summer between 1997- 1999…his burning passion and intensity for the game was always visible, Coach Byrd always strived for excellence from all his players and he pushed me to do more than even I thought I could do. He still provides support and guidance to me in other areas of my life. Not only did I become a better player because of Coach Byrd, I became a better person, and for that I am grateful” says Seye Aluko, Esq (former college player at Howard University and now lawyer at a Washington DC law firm).
Most recently he took on a very different challenge, coaching little league basketball in Savage, Maryland. This was one of the most rewarding experiences for him as he watched young boys with limited basketball skills develop into competitive athletes; the team went from losing there first three games to winning every game for the rest of regular season, only losing in the last round of the playoffs. Watching young people develop strong determination and character is the highlight of Coach Byrd’s coaching career.
Currently, he is in his first year as the Boys JV Basketball at a rebuilding program. He has coached players on all levels of the game, little league, high school, college and professional players but his passion and ability to develop athletes from start to completion is his greatest attribute to getting participants to the Next Level.
