Playing on Rico's Get Better League was a great experience. I feel that all the scholar athletes benefited from the opportunity. Playing with some of the best basketball players in high school and having that high level of basketball made it that much more competitive and fun.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping others who are in the need not just about the kids playing in the league.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes, the league not only helped the athletes but we also helped other kids who are less fortunate. whats better then that

I have known Rico for many years, and seen his incredible coaching style with young basketball players. He had a summer league that I attended, and often ended up volunteering my assistance in checking in the players, etc. Rico gave the young men confidence by not yelling at them, but with his calm coaching style, they were able to pay attention to his directions and suggestions. The GET BETTER FOUNDATION is an excellent example of how to get young men motivated and to enhance their basketball skills.

Many of the young men were attending local colleges. I saw them develop confidence and basketball skills that enhanced their playing during the school season

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I personally had the opportunity to play under Rico and he really taught me alot. I played on his team when I came straight out of high school and was going to be a Freshman in college and Rico's guidance really helped me out and he is a big reason why I'm at where I am right now. The Get Better Foundation is incredible and I thank Rico for doing what he does best.
