As a coach, there’s not much that Darius can’t do, and everything he takes on he handles excellently,” said coach Wattad. “In just one year, he’s been instrumental in helping build the program. His abilities along with his high character & vibrant personality help form a rising star in this business! I’m happy he’s by my side.”
