I am a 23 year old student finishing up my Parks and Recreation Degree at Northern Arizona University. I played two years of college basketball at Texas Lutheran University before reoccurring knee problems forced me to finally take a different approach to the game. I was a one year starter, named team captain as a Sophomore, and a two time American Southwest Conference Scholar-Athlete award winner. My knee troubles have actually become more of a blessing than a curse. I have always known that I wanted to become a college basketball coach, but my recent experiences have shown me that coaching truly is my passion. I spent two years coaching the freshman, and assisting the varsity, at Flagstaff High School. I also coached a 15u AAU team and have had the opportunity to work at and run various basketball camps and tournaments throughout the state. Currently I am working as the student assistant under Coach Mike Adras at Northern Arizona University. This summer I will be working as an intern at the IMPACT Basketball training center in Vegas. Then I will be heading back to Arizona to be the Head Assistant at Yavapai Junior College. I see basketball as a tool to open up numerous different aspects of one's life and am constantly looking to grow and learn from this amazing sport.

Glad to hear you're working with NAU. When Montana comes around on the schedule, please tell Tinks and Hill I said hello. Adras probably doesn't remember me from my time at Eastern, but tell him hello for me anyway.
Hey Kadin! Things are going... We dropped two this past weekend at Ozarks (let that one get away from us) and at UT Dallas. This week we've got LeTourneau and ETBU at home. Hopefully we learned some lessons and we will play better.
