“Many coaches are happy just to say they have an athlete with a name already. They let parents control their program because they are sacred they may lose the kid. They allow the players to feel like they may be more important than another kid on the team. That will never happen here. Every kid in Hoop Dreams Athletes is important and I don’t have a designated STAR on my team! If you think you are a star then you will act like a star. My kids understand that the stars in Hoop Dreams Athletics are the coaches, the ones that are donating their time to get them better”. Coach Williams also prides himself on having quality teams over a quantity of mediocre teams. “The thing is I usually only have one or no more than two teams every year, I want to have quality and eventually I guess that will open the door to having lots of teams. But only when I feel that I have quality coaches for each team.”

The Hoop Dreams Athletes goals are:”To make sure EVERY kid on my team gets a full scholarship(free education)!. I know that many of the kids on my team may go on to play some form of pro basketball but that is not my focus. My focus is to make sure that they are working hard and preparing themselves to get in front of college coaches and earn a free ride. I preach to them that it is a job when getting a scholarship and if you don’t do your job well someone else will definitely have your job!”. Says Williams. The club will start off this season by participating in the ASGR Hoop Fest Atlanta,GA April 15-17 2016 and the Deep South Event in Raleigh,NC April 22-24 2016.
