"Will Burkholder is a fantastic teacher of the game of basketball. He was my assistant for three years at Charlotte Latin and did an amazing job. Organized, personable, great work ethic, everything you would look for in a coach. I read the other day that "educators sometimes take things that are easy and make them hard while communicators take things that are hard and make them easy." Will is a communicator." - Coach Jerry Faulkner
