“I was so delighted when I heard the news. As a board, we are also happy that this award is coming at such a strategic time that we will be going to the Commonwealth Games. It has vindicated our decision to appoint you as D’Tigers coach to lead the team as we seek to rebuild the brand with Nigerians in charge.

“When you were appointed, many people asked questions. We told them to trust the process and have faith because we collectively saw something in you.”

According to him, “With a silver medal finish at the 2017 Afrobasket, a 100% record so far in the 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifiers and leading your college to the 2018 regional title and qualifying for the National finals, it shows that our trust in you is paying off.”

The latest honor is his 8th individual regional award in 17 years of coaching the Erie Community College basketball team.

He advised Coach Nwora to never take his eyes off the mark as he prepares his team for the NJCAA Division II National Championship Tournament between March 20th-24th in Danville, Illinois.
