LeFlore High School, Class of 2001, and a coach of many years for the Springhill Wildcats, Eightmile Giants, and Navco Vikings. He enjoyed coaching and making a difference in the lives of children all over the Mobile area. He won countless championships encouraging children with the phrase, “Together we stand, divided we fall. All for 1 and 1 for all!” He loved his family, coaching, playing pool, football, and basketball, and he was Michael Jordan’s biggest fan. He touched the lives of many and his smile, laugh, and presence will be truly missed.
