Adam Turner

Adam Turner played his college career at Bard College where he holds the Raptors’ career scoring record with 1,785 points. As an undersized post player, Adam had to continually match up against bigger, stronger players throughout his career. Adam experienced phenomenal success due to his student-of-the-game mentality, his pursuit of excellence, craftiness as a player and unrelenting spirit. As a result of his efforts, Adam was a four-year starter, a three-year team captain and a two-time NCAA Division III All-American while at Bard.

Adam graduated from Bard College in 2006 and took his first step into the collegiate coaching ranks as an assistant for the Raptors during the 2006-07 season. He also served as the Director of the Hoop Group Skills Camps. In 2009, Adam took over as head coach of the men’s basketball team at his alma mater.

I came into Coach Turner’s program as someone who thought they had a well-rounded knowledge of the game of basketball, but the everyday learning culture that Coach Turner created showed me how much more there was to explore. When it comes to both X’s and O’s and player development, Coach Turner opened doors in my game that I didn’t even know were there. He helped me build a mindset that set me apart on and off the court.

Graham is the most genuinely caring coach I have ever met; not only about the players skill set, but more importantly their day to day character and walk with Christ. Graham was the youngest and most eager to learn coach I’ve ever had, therefore he was always able to guide me through the progressions of college basketball and life because he had just recently endured the same.

Kyle has an infectious energy and unique ability to connect with players. He constantly communicated “the why” behind the what and consistently challenged my son Drew to get outside his comfort zone — while keeping it fun at the same time. Drew left sessions with Kyle energized to implement what he learned, and confident for his upcoming tryouts.

Follow Marke Freeman on Twitter

Marke’s impact on me as a player but more importantly as a person has been monumental. From PGC camps to many 1-on-1 phone conversations, Marke helped me take the adverse situations I was facing in basketball and life and use that adversity and uncomfortableness to grow. Marke found a way to take what PGC teaches and use her own experience along with her unique personality, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with others to help me not only see what I am capable of but to actually pursue that version of myself. Statistics could show you I’m a better basketball player since having met Marke, but the intangible impact she’s had on me as a leader and person can’t be quantified.

I am writing in appreciation for the time you spent in the PGC 1-on-1 mentoring program with my daughter Kendall Harris. Her time with you meant a lot to her. She didn’t want to share much with my wife and me because she said “this is my thing, Dad”, but I can certainly tell that she was impacted.

Kendall took all the trainings very seriously and was always eager to meet with you. She has improved her skills – in particularly shooting – quite a bit during this pandemic. Your time with her helped enhance her performance and provide motivation to get out in the driveway each day. Confidence (tied to having a terrible mistake response) has been a tremendous issue with her and I hope she can move in a more positive direction towards her goal of having a successful next 3 years in high school, with hopes of playing in college.

Thank you for serving Kendall this past month,

— Mike Harris, Parent

Rudy Bentley Jr. has been a mentor, trainer, and like another big brother to me for as long as I can remember. He’s assisted me the past few years in skills on and off the court that have helped me propel myself to a career playing basketball overseas. He’s such a selfless person and always makes time to work with me, even though sometimes I know I can be hard to work with. Any question I have regarding anything on and off the court I know he can provide some valuable insight or words that can positively contribute to my way of thinking or my basketball game.
