As a former collegiate and professional tennis player, Dwight knows well the sports world. He continues coaching to this day, and has helped produce several state and national champions. He serves on the Houston board of Positive Coaching Alliance, as well as being a trainer for them. Through High Octane for the Mind, he is able to provide fresh, ongoing material for coaches and players. His emails serve as a great resource for coaches to utilize in talking with their players. Here is what various coaches are saying about Dwight’s influence:

“High Octane for the Mind has provided players and coaches with inspirational stories inside and outside the lines of sports. Using dialogue to begin our practices, players gravitate to the meaning of greatness in stories, and in turn seek their own greater good. I highly recommend High Octane to any coach seeking to take their team to the next level.”
