About Me

I have been following high school basketball in Louisiana since well before I graduated high school. If there is a Louisiana team playing or event going on, you will find me in the building. For Prep Hoops Louisiana, I am the lead writer and decision maker on team rankings, prospect rankings, event coverage, and recruiting profiles. I provide coverage in all areas of Louisiana prep basketball which includes both high school and grassroots basketball. Finally, I've been an assistant coach and head coach at varying levels of basketball in the state. From helping run local middle school programs to assisting at different high school programs across the state.
