    Hi, I’m Taylor Vigil and PGC Basketball was my saving grace.

    Let me explain…

    When I first heard about PGC, I was a sophomore in college. I attended the “Essentials Course” (now called Scoring College) the summer before my junior year.

    I remember sitting in the crowd listening to the goat Tyler Coston, now “brother” and mentor as I call him.

    He posed a question — one, that when I heard it, I knew I was in the right place.

    Tyler asked, “Are you the kind of person and player who has big aspirations?

    If that’s you…

    …are you willing to be an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity?”

    I recall sitting there with chills, thinking, everything’s about to change. And one week later, I felt different. My thinking was different. My game was different. My heart for the game, for others, and for myself we’re different.

    I used to be that person and player who was too shy — all while trying to be one of the cool kids.

    PGC changed that.

    By the end of that week, I was asked to join the PGC staff for one volunteer week and if I succeeded I would be offered a position with PGC Basketball. As a player who later became a coach, this was a dream come true.

    My dream of winning a National Championship, being a college basketball coach, and becoming a coach with PGC soon became a reality — all because of my one week experience at camp.

    And I’m forever blessed and grateful for the entire PGC family.

    Twelve years later, I’m still a part of something bigger than myself. And if you’re a player or coach with big dreams and aspirations, who wants to be a difference-maker, or someone who wants to be a light to help shape the basketball world…

    …then PGC is the place for you.

    While I’m no longer putting on my jersey playing overseas, or lacing up the NIKES to coach on the court, I’m still seeking to impact the world. Just now, it’s through a different lens and with a different uniform — as a police officer.

    I still remember and embrace the many lessons PGC has taught me, and courageously put them into practice daily.

    I’m Taylor Vigil and that’s my PGC story. What will yours be?

    I’ve been coaching in some capacity (various sports and levels) since 1996 and have been teaching and coaching since 2005. I was drawn to PGC because of the culture. The basketball stuff is amazing, but it’s the leadership and mentality training that’s truly impacted my life (and those around me).
