What sets your organization apart from other community organizations?

“A lot of people that start a non-profit are looking for grants and handouts, but we are here to make a life changing impact on our community.”

Why did you start Super Sports Elite?

“I had a dream while I was in prison that my brother and I owned a large facility with bowling, a training area and a play area. I made up a blueprint and everything. Even put a business plan together and sent all of this to my brother Adrienne.

Who else is involved in running the organization?

“My brother Adrienne, has been by my side since day one.”

What is the most significant event that ever happened to you?

“I was just released from prison and got caught up in a life sentence case. My heavenly Father gracefully pulled me from that situation, and I have been living for him ever since.”

What did you learn from that? “That God is good!”

Do you personally or via the business support a particular charity or other community organization? “We support all the local high schools and many other charities in town.”

Does your organization have a tagline?

“Move in a super way”

Tell us about your family.
