What makes your school the best place to coach for?
I have a lot of freedom to do a lot of things that I might not get to do at other schools and for the most part parents are really great here. There is nothing like a home game against another team when our student body is in the stands going wild and cheering us on. It is a great atmosphere for basketball game
