About Coach Carlos...

Coach Carlos and Matt Harpring (NBA 1998-2009)


My goal is to teach kids of all ages the fundamentals of basketball as well as develop the social skills necessary for the game of life. I am able to use my experience as a basketball player to relate with and inspire the children that I coach.

I grew up in Prentiss, MS and graduated from Prentiss High School before attending Pearl River Community College in Poplarville, MS. While playing Center for the Pearl River Wildcats, I majored in Physical Education and Business Administration.  From Pearl River, I went to William Carey University in Hattiesburg, MS and moved to the Forward position on the Crusaders basketball team. While at WCU, I continued my studies in Elementary Education, Physical Education, Business Management/Marketing and Sales and Advertising.

Following my college studies and playing career, I pursued my professional basketball career from 1995 to 2002 playing for teams across Europe and South Africa. During this time, I was fortunate to play all five positions on the court for teams based in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Belgium and South Africa. It was during my professional career that I began working with children through young adults to improve their skillset on and off of the basketball court helping them to play at their highest potential.

Over the past 10 years, I have coached boys and girls basketball in a local middle school feeder program. I have coached with the Lady Shooters basketball organization for the past 15 years with responsibility for all coaching duties associated with girls travel teams of various ages. Since 2008, I have also coached in the Cherokee Chargers boys travel team program as well. In addition to coaching boys and girls teams, I have continued providing individual and group training skills enhancement workouts and basketball camps year-round to children in our community.
