    PGC BASKETBALL DIRECTOR

    Yes Dakota led his team to the best record in school history. And yes, he was the team captain. And yes, he was 4 year college starter.

    But what most don’t know, is Dakota has a unique ability to connect with athletes quickly, challenge them gracefully, and guide them to a place they never thought they could go.

    Like most things in life, It didn’t come easy. Dakota knows what it’s like to be passed up on the recruiting trail and overlooked by coaches. But what he learned through that, is how to the best respond to tough situations and major setbacks. He’s developed the mentality of a champion, one in which he energetically teaches the players he currently coaches at Sterling College and through individual skills training.

    When your athlete attends a PGC camp with Dakota, they’ll learn from one of the brightest young minds in the game today. And they’ll away with a skillset ready to take their game to another level.

    His lighthearted personality, combined with ultra competitiveness is why athletes say, “he completely changed my game. I’ve never been this good.”

    Although Dakota saw great success in the sport, he overcame obstacles.

    For Dakota, it wasn’t always obvious to others he’d become a college baksetball players, but he knew if he dedicated himself, trained diligently, and got around the right the mentors, he would achieve his dream. And that’s what he did. Dakota knows how to connect with players like few others, and push them to become their best. His lighthearted personality, combined with competitiveness is what drove him to become a 4 year college basketball standout. He knows what it’s like to be passed over, and underrecruited. The frustration he felt has driven him to accomplish more than most thought he could. And that’s what he brings to the players he works with. A competitive drive. An uplifting spirit. And a deep knowledge of the game few people of his age have. He’s trained wit high level players, and coached players to reach their potential.
