Aaron was one of the best high school basketball players in South Carolina, if not the best, when he was growing up. His talents brought him to the University of South Carolina, and his work ethic eventually led to a journeyman’s career in professional basketball. The most impressive thing about Aaron, though? His ability to think and reason. Now, he’s an excellent Coach, Mentor, and Career Development Facilitator.
