Testimonial

"MomentumOhio provided our community with a lot of excitement about having two former Ohio State stars in our hometown, but the message our players experienced and heard during the events (youth clinic, lunch/talk, off the court) reinforced and enhanced the daily messages we give to players as coaches. We have spent a lot of money and time on other ways to develop our culture, but  the MomentumOhio Event was the most beneficial day as a team we had this summer."  (Joe Bedingfield, Willard High School varsity basketball coach)
