"I have been coaching for many years in both California and the basketball crazy state of Indiana. Thus, I have encountered many coaches throughout my career. Luke Duperron and myself had numerous interactions while hew as the Head Coach at North Torrance High and my current school of South Torrance High. Luke is astute at the strategic and fundamental aspects of basketball. However, he understands how to relate to and guide the improvement of each student in his charge. Luke has great energy and sincere intentions. Many people can possess knowledge, but not everyone is heartfelt in their care for others. Luke comes from a very loving and supportive family. In addition to being a very good basketball coach, he is a genuine person of integrity."
