Assistant CoachVincent Mims

Coach Vinny is a Basketball Trainer, Personal Trainer, Basketball Coach and former player. He brings a positive mindset to Koa Prep and an expectation of dedication and discipline. Born in raised in Baltimore, MD (Saint Frances Academy) and went onto graduate from Full Sail University in Orlando, Fl., Coach Vinny always dreamed of being a Basketball Coach, so he started his own AAU Basketball Program in 2015.  His niche is helping High School athletes that “fly under the radar” and give them a chance of placement. Coach Vinny brings his knowledge, passion and leadership to Koa with the same goal of placement. I want to not only help these kids reach the next level but help them grow from boys to men while using basketball as a vehicle for success. Coach Vinny joins Koa with 10+ years of experience coaching/training and a lifetime of knowledge of the game of basketball.

Executive Recruiting & Basketball Operations Consultant – Justin Brantley

There was never a season that wasn’t spent on a court, field, etc. As a high school athlete at St. Martin DePorres H.S. (Detroit, MI); I had the pleasure of learning what it took to be a champion and have since applied those principles to every phase of my life. I utilized the sport of football to earn my education (University of Illinois & Howard University) and took the lessons of teamwork, perseverance, and leadership learned between the lines on the field and turned them into standards that I live my life by. After a brief stint in professional football, I transitioned to Coaching & Student Athlete Development and began working with athletes from youth to the professional levels.

Head of SchoolTony Korson

Tony grew up loving and playing sports. His first memory of competitive sports was a 10U club soccer team, he wasn’t the worst player, but definitely bottom third on the team. Fast forward eight years (and a sport change later) there were a dozen division 1 players including the Maryland Gatorade State Player on that squad.  He was a late bloomer, Tony did not have any scholarship offers for baseball until late June after he already graduated high school.  He accepted an offer to play baseball at UMBC, and transferred to Florida Gulf Coast University after his first year in college.  To read more, click here.
