Coach Brian believes in creating a competitive environment where a player will be faced with challenges and adversity in which the player will need to overcome in order to achieve their goals and become successful.  Coach Brian will be entering his second year as Head Coach of the Ashburn Shooting Stars 2024 team during the 2021-2022 season.
