My love for both the city of Plymouth and basketball are parallel and having the opportunity to come back to basketball after a yearlong hiatus to help the Plymouth Raiders grow throughout the city again is incredible.
My basketball journey started as a 10-year-old lad from Efford watching the NBA on my mums then new Sky TV.
From that point on I was hooked. I was then fortunate enough in my early teenage years to meet a young Gary Stronach who coached me at my local school. Through Gary telling me about the Raiders, I finally got around to see my first game at the Mayflower Centre and from that point, developed a love for Plymouth basketball.
When I got the call from Ross saying that he is bringing back the Plymouth Raiders, that feeling of nostalgia and being a veteran basketball fan had me telling him straight away I’ll do whatever is needed to get the mighty Raiders back on the court and looking forward to seeing the impact it will have on the city in regards to giving fans, old and new even more opportunity to watch and play basketball in Plymouth.
