“ I feel my passion aligns with the goals of The Courts. I met John Wray (owner) 3 years ago, he is not only family man, but has a big vision and my goal is to carry out his desires. I am excited to start this new journey with the Wray family helping others, by using the facility as an equal opportunity to help people reach life goals using sports. Being an athlete, I feel team is important and I am glad that I was accepted on this one. I am ready to inspire positive change.”
