More About Me

Dave is a graduate of Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.  He also was a local high school basketball and baseball standout at Greendale Martin Luther HS.  Coach Dave coached high school basketball on and off post-graduation into his 20’s, until focusing his career on business development in Wisconsin working for several fortune 500 companies.  The love of the game was rekindled when his daughter, Paige, started playing in 4th grade.  As Dave states:  “….I absolutely fell back in love with basketball in 2011.  I realized my calling was to coach again.  Playing and coaching basketball is the best part of my day and a true calling- I love impacting players both on and off the court…”  Dave followed his calling and has coached all levels of basketball:  youth, middle-school, high school and college.  Dave coached at the D2 level for the University of Wisconsin Parkside Women’s program.  Dave has worked countless camps and clinics and does personal and small group workouts for all levels of play.
