  • Rudy Bentley Jr.

    PGC BASKETBALL DIRECTOR

    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.

    Rudy Bentley, a 2x PGC grad, a four-year college starter and former collegiate coach, has transformed the journey of players and coaches all across the globe. Rudy knows what it’s like to be undervalued, feel overlooked, and face adversity. But unlike so many high school athletes, he didn’t let those circumstances get the best of him. He persevered and overcame.

    Known as a great penetrator and creator for his teammates, Rudy was in the top four in assists per game every year in their conference.

    During his undergraduate playing career, Rudy began player development and training for some local high school athletes, discovering personal satisfaction in the growth of other players. At the end of his playing career, Rudy became an assistant basketball coach at Lakeland University, then Wisconsin Lutheran College before joining forces with fellow PGC director Sam Allen at Blue Collar Basketball.

    Rudy also works on PGC’s basketball development team, where he’s highly involved in the refinement and innovation of all PGC camp curriculums!

    Coming to a Rudy Bentley led PGC camp is an experience players and coaches don’t often forget!

    Although a relatively young man, Coach Rudy has exceptional leadership, communication & engagement skills. His commitment to detail, expert knowledge of the game, & timely personal stories make the PGC experience go “Boooooom!!!!!”
