James has been involved with the Junior Lady Knights for several years with his oldest daughter now in the junior high program and his youngest participating as a third grader. If you see someone sitting on the baseline at games snapping photos, it’s a good chance it’s Coach James. Last year he had the privilege of assisting Dave Ireton with coaching the Lil’ Dribblers and is very excited to have the opportunity to introduce this year’s third grade team to the JLK basketball family. With five children of his own, James has been coaching youth sports for a decade, including soccer, baseball, and softball, in addition to basketball. For the last several years he has coached multiple CYO basketball teams.
