Don thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how has your summer been?

I’m in Northern Virginia the Summer has been good. I’m working while playing in the APBL and The Goodman League which is one of the best summer leagues in the U.S.

Your 28 and have had a job through school and now in your 12th year while keeping the professional basketball dream alive. How difficult is it being able to balance all this?

It’s only difficult at times for me financially but it’s been a great journey even though I haven’t been signed yet I’ve been able to travel and go places I’ve never dreamed of going.
