Bio / About Me

I am from New Albany, MS and I attended high school at West Union Attendance Center. After high school I graduated from the University of Mississippi (Hailstate) with a degree in Exercise Science. I am a HUGE fan of Mississippi State, the New Orleans Saints, and the Memphis Grizzlies. This will be my third year in education and my fifth year coaching basketball. I am just recently married to my wonderful wife Avery and we are living in Southaven. I am looking forward to a great athletic and academic school year. Go Jags!
