17. Earl Brown - High School Coach
When Jermel learned he would be interviewing Earl Brown his first words were "Burke Basketball." He would watch the news and hear family and friends talk about Burke Basketball and Earl B. Growing up downtown, everyone dreamed of playing for this icon. Jermel was fortunate enough to experience what it was like to be in the mix. Every player looks for that coach that carries themselves with confidence and holds a high level of respect from their community. Earl B also pulled the grit and tenacity out of every player IF you had it in you. This created a transferable skill that’s applied to Jermel's life right now. The will to FIGHT and WIN. Jermel appreciated the tough love as it made him a soldier! The stories never change, just the times. Our DAE Foundation message is to bring quality information to student-athletes, parents of student-athletes and the community that supports them both.

She also participated in our nutrition segment for DAE TV! For DAE TV, Janet’s main focus was to educate student-athletes about proper foods to eat pre and post workouts, certain diets to consider to gain and/or lose weight, tactics to gain muscle, and foods not to eat if you are sick or injured during that time period. In my conversations with athletes and coaches everyone stresses the importance of DIET, NUTRITION and SLEEPING. Sometimes, we see kids eating McDonalds, Skittles and drinking sodas pre and post games. Athletes should be more intentional about health as well as talent. Your talent needs you to be healthy so it can perform!

13. BJ McKie - Assistant Coach (Wake Forest)
A high IQ, hard-nosed, grinding guard with a knack for putting the ball in the hole, BJ McKie was named "Mr. Basketball of SC" in 1995. From Jermel: "I can hear his voice right now from the 1999 Food Lion MVP Classic. I didn't start that game for whatever reason. By the time I got in the game, Mr. Basketball was already in a lather and his pot was boiling. I remember checking the game and making a B-line to the player I was guarding, BJ. I knew he smelled the energy. As the shot clock ran down, he called a 1-4. He dribbled left, crossed over, spun and before you know it, I was in the lane. He turned around, dropped a smooth hook and yelled 'YOU TOO LITTLE!'. To this day it gives me nightmares!" BJ had an amazing career in athletics and ministering through coaching. Coach McKie is currently the Assistant Coach at Wake Forest University. Tune in to hear about his playing career, recruiting athletes and the life of a collegiate coach.
