COACH MARK RODRIGUEZ
a.k.a "THE LIGHT SHOW"
"Great Leaders are all different and unique in their own way. There is one thing that they definitely do have in common. That is their passion and ability to make a difference. The impact they make is beyond words. Growing up as a kid there were basketball players that I knew that can shoot. One of the best jump shooters I've ever seen was Mark "The Light Show" Rodriguez. We would be playing in the park. It didn't matter who guarded him. He laughed and joked around and he would shoot anyone's lights out. Now he is a Coach and is making a huge difference in the community. His team works well together and they gel. Coach Mark Rodriguez let us know what motivates him"

Jason: "What motivates you the most about being a Basketball Coach?"
"I wanted to help kids out in the neighborhood. I knew a lot of them didn't have a lot of things. I really wanted to be a Basketball Coach. Along the way I became a Mentor and a Father Figure towards them too.
Jason: "You are very good at what you do and there are a lot of qualities one must have to be successful. What do you feel is the best characteristic to have in order to be successful?"
"There's a lot of things that it takes to be successful. A great personality and a positive attitude. Personality has to be the top priority. You have kids from a lot of different backgrounds. Not every kid can be coached the same."
Jason: "Do you have any other Passion or Life Goals and if so what are they?"
"Taking care of my Family is my Passion. I've always wanted to Coach. I also would like to Coach on the College Level. Making sure my family is taking care of will always be a Passion of mine."
Jason: "For those that are inspired by you and would like to chase their dreams and achieve their Life Goals what advice would you give them that would help them to be successful?"
"If this is what you want to do you can't just go halfway. You have to give 110%. There's a lot that comes with this. This is more than just Basketball."
Jason: "You are very motivating. For those that would love to support you how can they do so and what is the best way for them to contact you?"
"As a Coach of St. Raymond's High school there are ways you can support us. You can come to our games. You can reach me on my Instagram or my Facebook page."
