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 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.

I worked with Rico a couple years back and it was an ultimate learning experience. Not only did Rico guide me in the business field but he showed me how important it is to better our communities, and this is what this foundation stands for.

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.
