Preston is in the midst of his third season with the Prep Hoops Louisiana crew. He has spent 20 plus years in and around the game of basketball in different capacities. After graduating from the University of Louisiana Monroe in Education (teaching social studies), he began his coaching career at Southwood HS under Matthew Ponder. Under their leadership, they finished 2nd in district 1-5A and made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs. He moved to Keithville Middle School as a counselor but continued to coach on the AAU circuit. He coached three teams that qualified or participated in the Division 2 AAU national tournament. Preston also has served as a coach and mentor for several college basketball players from the Shreveport-Bossier area. Preston and his wealth of knowledge about the game has been an asset to the Prep Hoops staff and we look forward to him being part of the staff in Louisiana for a long time.
