Reason

"I started from a young age. I kind of moved around. I’m a military kid, dad’s in the army, so I grew up in Germany and went back to the States when I was eight or nine. It was kind of a rough period for me, adjusting back to a different country. I was inspired to play basketball by watching Michael JORDAN (USA) on TV. I tried to emulate everything he did, and that’s where I got a love for the game. I wasn’t skilled, but my goal at the time was to make it to the NBA. A lot of kids would laugh at me when I would say that, but I would not let that deter me from chasing that dream. Even though I never made the NBA, being able to call myself a professional, I would call my goals a success." (Basketball England Twitter, 17 Mar 2018)


Additional information

HERITAGE
Born in the United States, he moved to England in 2005 when he joined Plymouth, and has remained in the UK, getting married and starting a family. He admits his selection for England was a surprise. "It never crossed my mind but, now I'm in the moment, I'm taking it in my stride and enjoying the process. When I got the invitation to the initial camp I was all for it, I wanted to do my due diligence. I was very interested in being involved and fast forward to being a part of it (the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games), it's been a blur." (bbc.com, 21 Mar 2018)
