Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Josiah Lake. Josiah started his basketball career playing at Oregon State University. He then went on to spend 11 years working for Brand Jordan, where he served as Global Director of Jordan Footwear. While paving a successful career for himself which included working hand-in-hand with Michael Jordan, Josiah still found time to pursue his passion for training players.
In 2013, Josiah decided to focus on this passion full-time and opened The Practice Facility in Portland, OR. His vision was to combine his basketball and business experience to create a unique place for players of all ages to pursue their goals. The Practice Facility has helped send over 60+ players on to play college basketball.
Josiah finds purpose in helping young players develop, and understand how to use basketball as a vehicle to accomplish their goals on and off the court.
