“The pressure on student athletes is intense at these tournaments. First of all, their futures are at stake. Will they get the attention of college coaches? Will they get recruited by top schools? I can help them cope with the pressures and help them see the big picture,” said Davenport, a former college athlete who now advises basketball coaches and basketball students at the high school and college levels.
“I have a genuine interest in helping basketball players. I speak their language. Basketball is my passion and self-improvement is my lifestyle. I’ll be happy to speak to their entire teams, or one-on-one with them and even meet with their parents and coaches,” said Davenport who founded Basketball to Success, an association for current and former basketball players to network, get career advice and learn how to grow with self-improvement.
