    Coach Joe Stanley is a man who has taught me many things about both life and basketball.  I first met Coach Joe in 2009 at a board meeting of The First Tee, when my brother Holden and I spoke.  Coach Joe would become my travel AAU basketball coach in 2010.  I was in for much character improvement, both on and off the court. Coach Joe taught his team respect for others as well as for our surroundings.
