What Do the Children Say?

"I would like to be a tennis player because it improves my concentration, because I would like to travel the world and because it is fun. I would like to improve my serve. My favorite tennis player is Pete Sampras."

He worked for 8 years under the tutelage of USPTA Professional Jim Huber, an icon in north Florida tennis. Jason was promoted to Head Pro at the age of 17 and took control of the junior program where he coached many young players to obtain state, national, and international rankings. He also coached players who went to college on scholarships as well. In summer of 2000, Jason became the tennis director at Danville Country Club, Danville Kentucky. He worked there for one season before going to graduate school at the University of Kentucky to study Philosophy of Hispanic literature. In 2003 and 2004 he became a tennis coach at Tates Creek High School, Lexington, Kentucky.

His efforts in Anguilla have assisted two players in receiving tennis scholarships.
