Read some of the comment’s left by Coach Harris’s students and parents

“Coach Harris is the current Head Coach for the Boys Varsity Basketball Team at Collegiate School. He is also the Head Coach for Team Richmond Garner Road 17U – AAU Team. In addition to high school and AAU coaching, he is the President of the Del Harris Basketball Academy.  Coach Harris should win the title for “Coach of the Month” because he stands out from all of the other coaches I’ve known. He works with the players both on and off the court to guide and mold these athletes into outstanding young men. Coach Harris has a love for the game/sport of basketball that is unsurpassed by anyone else and he shares that love with his players. His goal is for these athletes to become not only a “team” but a “family” when they are being coached by him. He coaches his players mind, body, and game – he doesn’t just want the “WIN” he wants the players to understand what they are working towards, how it is they are going to achieve that goal, and then what it is going to take to continue to surpass that goal … both mentally and physically.”

“Coach Harris cares about his players off of the court as well. He can often be found providing motivational speeches to students across the state of Virginia, mentoring in one of the local middle schools in Chesterfield Co., volunteering his time to help those less fortunate, and always attending extra curricular activities for his players to support them in all that they do.”

“I could go on and on about Coach Harris. In summary … he is a coach not only to his players on the court, but in life as well. Once an individual has played for him, he is forever their coach and will follow that individual and support them throughout life. Delmar Harris has an insane work ethic, an unstoppable ambition, and an absolutely beautiful soul.”

“Del Harris, Boys Varsity Basketball Coach, Collegiate School. Going into his 3rd season, he has transformed the culture and community of Collegiate. His is not only a top coach, but a mentor, innovator, motivator and inspiration to young men across the Richmond area. Coach of Team Richmond Garner Rd AAU, his 2018 team gained notoriety for the their performance on and off the court. Due to his efforts, Collegiate School is on USA Basketball Youth Development’s radar for their exceptional program and athletic potential.”
