The Winner's Circle...In Basketball and In Life

In the short time that I've been the Varsity Men's Basketball Coach at Patrick Henry High School we've had the opportunity to achieve much success.  You can read about my background and life's accomplishments by clicking on my Biography. There is no secret to our success, just a strong belief in what we call the 6 C's:  Coal/Charcoal, Compassion, Creed, Commitment, Character, and Champions.
 
I've developed this Web site to help everyone achieve their goals, but specifically to help our young African American men succeed in school and in life.  These young men don't need a different method of education; they do need and deserve our very best motivational and teaching strategies.  You will find these strategies in each of the six lessons that I present below, along with a specific approach to passing the Minnesota Basic Skills Test and preparing for the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment.
