A Proud Atlanta Select Coach!!!


I am proud of all my coaches in the Atlanta Select Basketball Association. 
Proud of their dedication, commitment and professionalism. 
Head Coach Brian Frazier above, has been with the organization for 6 years.  
He posted the following comments on Facebook with his thoughts. 
Proud to share them.
(Coach Z.)


*********
I'm on Cloud 9 tonight. Finished 4-0 at the Elite 32 Showcase. 
First time in my 6 years of coaching AAU that I have beaten a shoe team. 
Great group of kids, but I love to life. 
1 more local exposure tournament then off to Hampton, VA to play in
 Boo Williams Showcase. 
It definitely gets tough at times but I wouldn't change it for the world. 
Trying to be a positive role model, early mornings, late nights, picking kids up, dropping kids off.
Lord willing, all 12 of them will go to college! 
Thanks to my coaches for always having my back!

Coach Frazier is the head coach of the Mighty Atlanta Select 15u SILVER Team.

Basketball never stops.

I was out of town for the last few days, traveled to Las Vegas to see my son Kenny Zeigler play in the National Ultimate Hoops tournament.


Kenny who celebrated his 36 birthday on last Tuesday still plays in a league under 
Lifetime Fitness. 

http://leagues.uhlife.com/profile_scout.aspx?RegionID=13&SeasonDivisionID=2128&PlayerID=9123

It is just for fitness and fun but his love of the game has lasted for 30 years. 
Rec Ball, AAU Ball, High School Ball, College Ball and now Ball for fun. 
Yes, Basketball never stops.

I guess that is why I am still interested in directing the Atlanta Select Basketball program after 26 years in the business, 13 as an Atlanta Celtics and 13 as Atlanta Select.

In Las Vegas, I ran into one of my former Atlanta Celtics player, Jamison ((Jamie) Brewer.
Jamie was on one of the first Atlanta Celtics team with my son in the early 1990's.

Jamie front row number one on the left.
Kenny second row number six from the left next to the coach.


Jamie now after an NBA career and working with youth teaching the game in Las Vegas,
 and playing basketball.


Kenny now, married with children and a Senior Manager with Samsung Electronics, 
and playing basketball.

As we wait for the NBA Finals next week let us continue to love the game.

And the Atlanta Select teams will be playing all summer.

Have a great weekend and Just Go Select!!!
