Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne. To see the MaxOne platform, schedule some time here.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Rodney Perry. Coach Perry is the inaugural head coach at Link Academy, finishing their first year as the #2 team in the nation after losing in the 2022 GEICO National Championship to Montverde Academy.
Coach Perry has experience coaching in the Nike EYBL as head coach of the Mokan Elite, where he developed elite NBA level talents like Trae Young, Michael Porter Jr., and more. Prior to his time at Link Academy, he served as a collegiate coach at places like Oral Roberts, Western Illinois, Kansas City, and more.
Coach Perry believes that relationships are at the core of coaching, and he lives that out in the way he leads his program on a daily, weekly, and annual basis.
