Kaelynn: Wow, where to begin. I have had so many great and inspiring coaches in my life. From starting out with YMCA ball with Matt Decker, to evolving and continuing to pursue my dreams of playing in college by participating in AAU ball. This started with the Martins seeing the potential and believing in me. Coach Marty (AAU) taking over and building a strong foundation for me. Coach A and my teammates became the foundation for me and where I ended up finishing my AAU season. My high school years of playing have been lots of tears and joy! Coach Shaw took over two years ago and has brought out some of the best in me, and Antonio for believing in me and taking the time to work with me. I definitely plan on playing at the next level. I have made some truly incredible bonds with these coaches and I’m grateful.
