“Growing up in Milwaukee and attending Vincent High School I was around so many talented players, who never made it out of the city. Both because of a lack of access to professional training, but mainly because of support off the court in areas such as character and personal development, as well as tutoring. I love how DRIVE takes a holistic approach to their mission. Their leadership is well educated and insightful, and I am glad to have an opportunity to be apart of a organization such as Drive.”
