In my time as the Varsity Boy’s Head basketball coach, I have compiled a winning record as the team has been to the past three state tournaments and reached the "Sweet 16" in two of those years (2009-2010 and 2011-2012), as well as finishing as region runner-ups in 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.

In addition, every player that has played for me has graduated from high school with numerous players receiving athletic scholarships.
