I started playing basketball at age eight with my dad. Early on he emphasized the importance of ball handling and passing skills. He taught me how to see the whole court and become a more complete player. I spent hours independently developing my skills and understood that individual work was extremely important. Once my skills were developed, I took my game to the streets of Philadelphia.
Growing up playing ball in North and West Philly taught me how to play with the mental and physical toughness that is needed in today’s game. I competed with the best “ballers” in the city. I played organized basketball in school and studied basketball philosophies taught by the best coaches in the country.
Court Sense was derived from my playing experiences and passion for learning and studying this great game. I’m a hands-on instructor and have the ability to demonstrate all the skills performed by today’s college and NBA players.
