Coaching Philosophy: Erik's teams love to compete and play hard-nosed basketball with an emphasis on tough man-to-man defense. You often see his players diving for loose balls, taking charges, and sprinting into position.
Offensively, Erik prefers to teach his players how to play basketball rather than running set plays. He believes in asking a lot of his players and holding them accountable for their roles on the team. His main goals are to develop players, raise their basketball IQs, and teach them to have fun and respect the game and the competition.
Additional Info: Erik lives in Reston with his wife and they are expecting their first baby. Erik has a deep-rooted passion for all Boston sports but especially the Red Sox.
