As a matter of fact, the summers from 1996-1999 he, along with his mother, ran a basketball program called Midnite Basketball. It was sponsored through the city and it's purpose was to keep the youth off the streets during the evening hours of the summer. He thought this would give them an opportunity to do something they enjoyed and eliminate violence among teens.

During that time he also coached middle school boys and some high school freshman. As a result, he was awarded a community service award for his achievements.  In the end,For Mike, this was an extremely successful four years.

In the fall of 1999, Mike began attending UNT where he spent the next five years working on his degree. Mike's first endeavor was the journalism field, however, his love of sports soon helped him to continue his education in Kinesiology. Mike finished with an Applied Arts and Sciences degree and spent any free time involved in intramual sports. 

Shortly after graduating, he became involved in officiating basketball and was able to have the experience to officiate at all levels of both boys and girls. Mike has been a part of LGB(NT Heat) organization for the last three years. This year he has been recently appointed as Director of Basketball Operations for LGB where he will manage the coaching staff. Through previous employment Mike has had the opportunity to refine his management skills. He also has over 12 years of experience working with youth in both select and recreational sports. Therefore, this position makes a great fit.
