“After 16 years at the helm of ‘The Program’ a premier high school basketball program in East Baton Rouge Parish, at Scotlandville Magnet High School, it is with much thought, prayer and family support, that I’ve decided to step down as head coach. It has been my honor and privilege to serve as Head Boys Basketball coach. I’m grateful to have served in this capacity. This opportunity I’ve been afforded over the years to pour into the lives of young men has truly been unmeasurable. I’d like to thank everyone for the support I’ve received over the years from administration, district, fans alumni, parents and players.”
