Dustin brings Soul Focused Psychology to every aspect of his coaching methodology. Dustin believes that each of his player’s posses inherent greatness and inner power and uses basketball as a vehicle to support his players bringing out their greatness in every aspect of their lives. Dustin’s players are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA and to conduct themselves as gentleman and leaders at school, home and the community.
