I created this Florida travel basketball team because I learned at a young age the tremendous impact that basketball can have on a child’s life. I began my basketball career at Dillard High School where I was able to not only witness, but become a pioneer of the championship program established at the school where we won consecutive State Championship titles. While in high school, I also joined an elite travel basketball club that was the top rated team in Florida and one of the top ten teams in the country.
As a former AAU Basketball player, I know first hand the benefits and positive impact participating in an elite AAU basketball program can have. I was able to develop in every aspect of my life and grow into one of the top recruited players in the nation thus, allowing me the opportunity to gain the exposure necessary to obtain a full athletic scholarship from Clemson University, and move on to play professionally here and abroad. The profound impact that this sport has left on my life, inspired me to start a basketball skills and mentoring academy called Kingdom Training in 2009, and now expand to a basketball travel club to help the younger generation maximize their potential on a greater level.
I am humbled to have some of the same people that coached and mentored me be a part of our KT Kings staff. These basketball coaches, leaders and mentors have not only great knowledge of the game they also are passionate about developing kids and seeing them become the best people they can be. We understand that most kids will not make it to the NBA, but these young men will be future husbands, fathers, and leaders some day and we are here to help navigate them through the process. As the President, I feel my prior experiences have allowed me to gain an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the game, which helps set this organization apart from many others. I’m excited about this journey of building champions!
