Coach Ray's Coaching philosophy - "I want players to know from the moment we make our first contact they have a coach that believes in their ability to succeed not only in basketball but in life. i am the coach that will go through the wall for every player in this academy. parents must know that winning is not my first priority, although i do love to win, if winning is their number one priority then this isn't the home for them. I don't coach for the money, i coach because it is my purpose and calling. my focus is making sure that each player is in a better position spiritually, mentally and morally. life is precious and the time that we are allowed on this earth is the time we are given to leave the world a better place through faith, perseverance and hard work."
