  • My proudest accomplishment was Coaching the Calhoun School Varsity Girls Basketball team to back-to-back league championships in 2008 & 2009, and the best record (21-2) in the history of the school (for a girls or boys team). Just an amazing team that, through hard work and determination, turned me into a championship coach. Being part of this team was truly a highlight of my career.
