>Maui Basketball and Sunsets

>Throughout my basketball carreer I have been fortunate to have travled and entertained fans all over the world well now I find myslef traveling all over the country traning the youth of America.

I Just returned from Maui Hawaii, I was given the opprutunity to work with a High School from Lahina, Lahinaluna H.S the School is the “Oldest this side of the Mississippi” a school so rich in tradition that it has dorm rooms for the traditioned students to travel and live in. However traditon rich it was the school does not have aenough money to support its sports programs and struggles to supply shoes for the players who come from lower cconomic conditions in High Inflated Hawaii. I was blessed to be invited over to work with a independent parent who wants something to change in the culture for the youth program and build a sports program as rich as the tradition itself.

I trained 30 boys and girls all JV and Varsity players for 2 days over 6 hours and loved every minute of it. The Next few blogs will be about the trip and the kids.
