Gulf Coast Head Coach
"Selfishly for our program here at Gulf Coast, there are few times when we're gonna have 12 high school programs in the gym, with quality players. That are coached by quality coaches. So that is an advantage, I've already seen 3 or 4 guys, I've went back and jotted their name down, thinking I need to keep an eye on them next season."
