I'm a graduate of Victor Valley High School and completed my education at the University of Phoenix where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Administration of Justice. I’m the Program Director for the Criminal Justice Program at San Joaquin Valley College. I have been fortunate enough to be associated with two exceptional coaches throughout my playing career. Coach Ollie Butler, who I played 3 years for and earned all-League and All-CIF honors, and Coach Bob Boyd, the legendary USC and Mississippi State coach, whom I played for at Riverside Community College earning player of the year honors. These two gentlemen are my mentors to whom I owe a great deal of my successes in life, along with my mother and father who supported me and guided me in the right direction. I continued my education and my basketball career at the University of Alaska. I had a brief opportunity in Portugal, Spain before sustaining my second major knee injury. I worked Law Enforcement as a Correctional/Tactical Support Officer for 10 years in the State of Arizona. I then pursued coaching at Silver Valley High School (Boys) in Yermo for 3 years with a record of 36-15. I was fortunate enough to have coached and mentored former New Jersey Nets, San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz superstar Richard Jefferson. I coached at Hesperia High School (Girls) for 3 years (33-16). I have continued to participate in basketball camps and attend various coaches' clinics. I currently live in Hesperia and I have been with my best friend and my soul mate for the past 13 years. I have 3 children: Ricky (24) Who played Division I at Pacific College, Shanice, Plays at UNLV and transferring to University Houston (21) and Danielle (18), who plays softball for Universtiy of Alabama A&M.
