Tom has coached successful 1st-4th grade McLean developmental, All Stars, and recreational (Fairfax Stars, Little Legends) league teams, fostering teamwork and teaching boys fundamental skills and techniques to grow as players. Tom also coaches McLean Little League baseball and flag football. Through these various efforts, Tom is proud to have closely followed and developed many of our young athletes, and is excited to lead them to the next level in Select basketball.
A former college football quarterback, Tom strongly believes that leadership can be taught at an early age and is a core skill that builds confidence and furthers the potential for success in almost any endeavor. He encourages each player to lead by example, by knowing his responsibilities, supporting teammates and giving 100%. In addition, Tom’s coaching approach emphasizes preparing and empowering players to recognize offensive and defensive situations, to communicate and make quick, strong on-court decisions -- while always competing through the final buzzer.
