"Coach Tucker and Coach Keehn are exceptional coaches. They truly care about making you the best version of yourself both on and off the court. There's plenty of life lessons they taught, but none resonated more than these three: DISCIPLINE - be on time, ATTENTION TO DETAIL - execute; GIVE YOUR BEST EFFORT - all the time (in practices, games and life). If I could, I would do it all over and play for them again."
"Coach Tucker and Coach Keehn elevated the level of Barrington basketball from their first day. Our team was consistently more disciplines and prepared than our opponents. The fundamentals taught have translated far beyond basketball and I still fall back on those lessons learned today."
"Coach Tucker and Coach Keehn have been monumental forces in my life. I played for them at Loyola Academy and they were true pillars for me. Anyone who played for that coaching staff knew the essence of hard work, knowing there are no short cuts, and having true accountability. These lessons were not only vital on the basketball court but have shaped me into where I am as a professional today."
"Hard work, discipline, attention to detail and being a good teammate were expected of me every day from the day I entered the program under Coach Tucker and Coach Keehn. Those qualities, which were instilled in me, not only helped me become a better basketball player, but more importantly, have given me an edge in the real world as a working professional."
"Playing varsity basketball was a dream come true for me. My coaches instilled in me what it takes to become the best version of myself. I learned the importance of listening to details and asking questions if I did not understand something. These same learning tactics have and will continue to guide me in life outside of basketball."
"I spent most of my time in high school playing Varsity basketball. The coaches gave me an opportunity to grow my game and grow as a person. As I continue on to the college basketball level, I will do so knowing that I am ready and prepared for the next challenge both on and off the court."
"Playing for Coach Tucker and Coach Keehn gave me the skills and confidence to compete against guys years older than me, and the chance to play at a high level early on. They are coaches that bring out the strengths in each player, therefore, they can find success in all phases of life."
