A holistic approach to sport - one that blends academics, leadership, service, and personal interests - is increasingly favored over a singular, linear path.
— Coach Popp

In my work as a coach, it has become increasingly clear to me that athletes who model basketball as a framework for learning all of life's lessons - both on- and off-court - are more successful as young adults. A holistic approach to sport - one that blends academics, leadership, service, and personal interests - is increasingly favored over a singular, linear path. My philosophy has helped propel young athletes from high school careers to elite college programs and beyond.

Over the course of my career I have learned from and collaborated with some of the best coaches in the world. As an instructor, I have leveraged those experiences and developed a coaching style centered on fundamentals, balanced with an energetic and team-focused approach. Consistency and unrivaled work ethic are hallmark characteristics of any successful basketball player, and I strive to inspire those qualities in every student-athlete and in every facet of their life. I challenge each of our players to control the controllables and trust the process.
