What EYG means to me:
I first became a part of EYG as a younger athlete and had the opportunity to continually develop my skill-sets at an early age. Through EYG, I learned fundamental principles such as work ethic, discipline, team work, respect, and how to establish/ reach personal goals. A great aspect of EYG is that these ingrained lessons are not strictly limited to athletics, but are applicable to our everyday lives as well. Most importantly, the primary mission of EYG is to develop athletes while promoting and establishing Christian ideals. I am truly grateful that I had the opportunity to grow up under the influence of Coach Williams and the EYG foundation.
Why I want to be a part of the EYG team:
EYG equipped me with the essential tools which allowed me not only to excel in athletics, but also in school and my professional career as well. Because EYG had such a profound impact for me, I am thrilled for the opportunity to give back and be a part of the EYG mission.
TEAM MANAGERS / VOLUNTEERS
Consider your spring/summer internship as an investment in yourself and your own future. Your internship can be the perfect opportunity to expand your knowledge outside of the classroom. The hands-on real-world experiences that you encounter during an internship program enable you to develop your potential and make key contacts for future networking.

What EYG meant to me: EYG was so much more than just a place to become better at basketball. Aside from basketball, it taught me about discipline, hard work, and taught me about being humble. SPICE is an acronym that Coach Williams preaches and that resonated very much with me. I continually try to embody many of the ideals that he taught me to this very day.
Connection with Coach Williams: Me and coach Williams have a unique connection. He pushed me harder than anyone has ever pushed me before. He made me realize my potential and aspire to be better than what I was in both basketball and in life. I have remained close with him and continue to look for him for advice even today.
