Preston is a newcomer to the Prep Hoops Louisiana crew but he is definitely not a rookie. He comes to our team with a wealth of basketball knowledge spanning 20 plus years. After graduating from ULM in Education and 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 area. This wealth of knowledge is what Preston is bringing to the Prep Hoops staff.
