Giving Back on the Basketball Court
Bryan and his family make Gig Harbor their home. Consequently, his sons are taller than he and play basketball. Bryan, a lover of the game, has stayed involved with his passion by helping his sons’ basketball teams. He helps them grow their skill and agility through practice. ‘Osprey’ is a tip of the hat to his 7 years coaching basketball at Peninsula High School, home to the Seahawks. He enjoys basketball and even more the opportunity to mentor and coach young talent. Bryan believes that basketball is a tool to teach character and he enjoys giving back to his community in this way.
While I made my living as a coach, I have lived my life to be a mentor-and to be mentored-constantly. Everything in the world has been passed down. Every piece of knowledge is something that has been shared by someone else. If you understand it as I do, mentoring becomes your true legacy. It is the greatest inheritance you can give to others. It is why you get up every day — to teach and be taught.
— John Wooden
