I’m an average athlete, never got recruited to play any sports in college, and of an average height 5’11. I come from humble beginnings, growing up in a trailer as you see above. And I’ve been mildly obsessed with dunking a basketball my whole life. My dad didn’t share much growing up, but always spoke about wanting to dunk the basketball. Unfortunately, he was never able to live his dream, so I felt like it was my job to bring him some joy while I played high school basketball.
He absolutely loved it, even though his job as a coal miner, then a truck driver, only allowed him to see 1-2 games per year.He couldn’t wait to watch layup lines at the beginning & see me do my bests to throw down circa 1995-1997.
