My Students

Since 2009, from the time that I got the opportunity to coach here, 100% of my student athletes have graduated from high school.

My name is Mr. G.

I serve as the Boys Varsity Basketball Head Coach at APRHS. One of the main hurdles that I have encountered as a head coach yearly is finding funds for our teams.

The population that I coach is very resilient. They are not your average high school student athletes. The majority of my student athletes have extra responsibilities that entail babysitting little siblings, babysitting grandparents, potential after-school employment due to family financial hurdles, and most importantly, they still need to meet their academic daily goals. Academics are always top priority in my program!

My Project

These donations will make a difference to our project by adding to all the fitness equipment we have received through donors choose. Through donations, we have established a detail resistance training program and with the addiction of kettlebells, we can continue the improvement of ours student-athletes strength and conditioning.

This equipment will help prevent injuries.

Through certain workout routines with proper kettlebell usage will allow our student-athletes to stay injury free and survive the basketball season. During competition, our athletes will feel faster, stronger, and more confident about the task at hand. We can even display their favorite athletes using the kettlebell so that they can motivate themselves to strive for excellence.
