Gerard writes…

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to be offered the role of Basketball Development Manager.  Knox Basketball is one of the premier basketball associations and to be able to work at a club which has such a proud and rich history makes me very excited.

Knox Basketball has worked hard in the past five or so years to get back to the top of the basketball landscape and there are many people that should be commended on playing a part in that. I am hoping in my time here at the Knox Basketball that I can stamp my own legacy that helps elevate the program to the next level.

There is a lot of work to be done and I can’t wait to get started in the role”.
