COACH ROGER
 
I am from St. Louis, Missouri.
I Attended high school at DeSmet Jesuit.  I played football at Truman State University, but I received my Bachelors of Science in History at Columbia College.  I am currently working toward my Masters in Secondary Education at Missouri Baptist University.
I have coached basketball at the JV and Varsity levels for both boys and girls over the past 10 years.  I spent the last 4 years as the head coach of the boys Varsity team at Arrupe Jesuit high school in Denver Colorado.  
I love the game of basketball because of its beauty.  A cohesive unit working together through ball movement and communication demonstrates the beauty of basketball when it is being played at the highest level.  It can look effortless, despite the amount of work that goes into that level of continuity.  I love the process of working with players and teams to develop their knowledge of the game so that they may forge that level of continuity.  
I joined LHBA because it was an opportunity to continue coaching after moving back home to St. Louis.  As someone who took over a program at a younger age than most, I knew that I still had much to learn.  Working with my colleagues at LHBA will certainly provide me with that opportunity and I couldn’t be more excited.
