Very good program that care about their youth.

I was unbelievably surprised at the commitment that the Metro Mentorship Initiative, through the Austin Comets Athletic program, has to lift up at-risk youths in the Austin Neighborhood. They truly 'walk the walk' and live what they teach. I was lucky enough to find Coach Massie last year and participate with him and Coach Murray in the basketball program. Basketball is the vehicle, but mentorship is the goal. These men are inspirational to me, by both their actions and words. Again, they truly live what they teach. And what they teach is respect, pride, self-control, and leadership. I consider myself fortunate to have found a group making a difference. Yes, the basketball is great, and I love that part of it. But connecting with the kids is the key. And Coach Massie and Murray have created an environment that is safe for these kids to express themselves and build themselves into young men. This organization is outstanding, and I am honored to call these men my brothers.
