He’s a Denver fan. His favourite player is Jamal Murray because of his incredible footwork. He specialises in shooting & mindset. He loves Nando’s. It's coach who?
The photo we've shared is a strikingly different look to how we know him! If you guessed Coach Ryan, you're correct.
What do you like about being a coach at Kingston Basketball Academy?
Being able to influence & educate the next generation of ballers in an environment I never had available whilst playing. At Kingston we have access to an incredible wealth of knowledge, where both players & coaches can continue to home in on their craft.
Favourite moment in your basketball journey?
Being fortunate enough to travel to America & play against high school teams. I got to see first-hand what is required to compete at a higher level. I learnt invaluable knowledge that in turn has helped me grow as both a player & coach.
Favourite player and why?
Jamal Murray. I'm biased as a Denver fan but both his ability to shoot the ball & his incredible footwork is great to watch. He provides a great teaching point for players, no matter what position they play.
What’s for breakfast & your go to cheat meal?
Bacon & eggs. And for a cheat meal you'll always find me at Nando’s.
Finally, what is your message to all Kingston ballers?
Best advice I can give to our ballers is to always come prepared to work hard. Regardless of your skill level, if you're willing to put in the work & be attentive, you will improve. Also, being part of Kingston you have access to incredible coaches and their wealth of knowledge. Don't take it for granted, always ask questions!
