Follow Friday: @CoachSWhite
Every week, USAB.com will join in the popular “Follow Friday” tradition and highlight one of the Twitter accounts we’re following. This week’s pick: @CoachSWhite
Sharman White, head coach at Miller Grove High School (Georgia), will serve as an assistant coach under Don Showalter with the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s U16 National Team. White, who also is a member of the USA Basketball Coaches Network, shares plenty of basketball wisdom on his Twitter feed. And considering White’s Miller Grove team won six consecutive state titles from 2008-09 through 2013-14, it’s clear that young basketball players and coaches can learn a few things following him.
