A few weeks ago I had the honor of presenting in front of every NBA referee and their executive staff during their yearly training here in Downtown Brooklyn. The experience was surreal and has provided me with some pretty awesome, unforgettable memories. I met some pretty legendary referees like Michael “Duke” Callahan #24, Monty McCutchen # 13, Zach Zarabia # 15, Derrick “DC” Collins # 11 and Ken Mauer # 41. I also met some amazing young trailblazers like Lauren Holtkamp # 7, Mark Lindsay # 29, Dedric Taylor # 21, CJ Washington # 75 and El Cubano Jacyn Goble 🇨🇺. I know that the time I spent with this group will never be forgotten and some of the friendships that were birthed on this day will get stronger and stronger as the days, weeks and years go by. I am truly THANKFUL 🙏🏼
Not sure how I have gotten to a point in my life where people actually want to hear me speak about my life story but nonetheless I am grateful for every opportunity. I promise to give each and every presentation 110% whether it’s the NBA, 1,000 NYPD Police Recruits or a room full of elementary school kids. Each and every audience is an opportunity for me to tell my story, getting my message across of love, faith, compassion, forgiveness, redemption and giving back.
