Babacar Sy, Head Coach at Adidas Nation

“I coached Boris in high school, and not only he was a key component in our nationally ranked team, but he was already a coach within the team. I am not surprised that his leadership skills took him to build a well thought out training program. I think that his best natural asset is his passion for giving to others.”
