What deon says...
He’s a real funny, happy go lucky guy with a laid back personality who knows how to teach the game of basketball to young players. He’s not for everyone because he doesn’t yell nor does he scream when he teaches. He knows how to get the job done. Although he’s capable of teaching a more experienced player, I believe that he works better with players who are new to the game and who are in need of more special attention. If you’re not in a hurry to learn the game, Dennis is a very patient person and he doesn’t mind taking the necessary time to help you fully understand the gifts that God has bestowed upon you. “Try him, you might like him.”
