Join Anna K. as she interviews....Korey Harris!
There aren’t many who understand hard work and overcoming obstacles the way Korey does. Korey never was the most athletic or gifted player growing up. Standing only 5’2 tall through middle school and without much growth in high school, Korey was constantly looked over for bigger players. At the young age of 15, after getting cut during freshman tryouts at McEachern High, Korey began running basketball “clinics” and practices in his backyard with a group of ball players from his community. He then began to notice that he and many of his peers lacked the skill not of their own fault, but they never had the opportunity to be trained and taught the fundamentals like some others.
Still focused on playing even after four years of getting cut, Korey attempted what seems impossible for someone like him. His freshman year of college at Hofstra University, Korey attempted to walk-on to the Division-1 program. Korey was then offered the opportunity to become a practice player and earn a spot on the team’s roster, but couldn’t stay in school because of his family’s financial struggles. Korey then had to return home and refocus.
After spending a lot of time in prayer and devoting himself to increasing his relationship with Jesus Christ, Korey decided to start a business to give players more opportunities to become great. From then on, Korey became a “student of the game” and devoted his focus to learning and studying the sport so that he loves so much. Korey now plays college basketball and offers world class training to athletes of all ages, sizes, skill levels, and sports so that they might have the opportunities that so many never experience.
