What are your best memories playing with Middlesex Magic?
My best memories of playing for the Middlesex Magic were really the lifelong friendships that I built with coaches and teammates. Most of these memories stem from the work of the greatest coach I’ve ever played for, Michael Crotty Sr. He was an incredible coach and friend, and he had a profoundly positive impact my basketball career and in my life. Basketball highlights include defeating the Illinois Warriors (AAU National Champions) at the AAU National Championships in 2001.
What is your current profession?
I am currently the Co-founder and CEO of Maki Fund, a software development agency that specializes in building new digital products and services for startups and Fortune 500 companies.
Middlesex Magic helped me the most by emphasizing the importance of getting the best education I could achieve. Most other programs were purely focused on basketball but the Magic was truly about academics first. Winning was fun but nothing made Coach Crotty happier than helping his players get into the best schools possible. I don’t think I would have taken school as seriously as I did or pursued the colleges that I did without Coach Crotty pushing me to reach my academic potential. I’m truly forever grateful for that.
