What do you hope to get out of the 2018 QBL season?

Relationships, Respect and Rings! That’s why I coach and that why I compete so hard.

I hope to maintain our close connection between our players and the local juniors; representing them the right way and providing a pathway to elite competition through the Heat is key. I absolutely love how many local players we have in our squad this year, guys that have grown up and played in the Townsville Basketball System! This is something I am really passionate about and very proud of.

We have made a commitment to building our Men’s program to be one of the most respected organisations in the QBL on and off the floor. Of course that means winning games and hopefully going back to back in 2018 but it also means building relationships with sponsors, engaging with fans and selling out our home court every game.

I can’t wait to get started with season 2018 with a really talented group of players but more so a great group of guys to be around. The level of commitment and sacrifice that the group has already shown and dedicated themselves to is really exciting.
