Coach Biographies

Shannan Nelson, Head Coach: Although this is his first year coaching the Middle School Mustangs, Coach Nelson is no stranger to the basketball court. He has played basketball most of his life, and was a member of one of the most dominating men's teams that Union College has ever had.

Shannan believes that there are many lessons that can be learned on the court. Here are some of Coach Nelson's rules - following these will lead to success in life:
1) Understand the game, respect the game, love the game
2) Play every shot, every game.
3) Better to do the wrong thing than nothing.
4) Never, ever, talk back to a ref.
5) Don't just do your best. Look to improve every day, every game...
