"I wouldn't be where I'm at today, with regards to Tribulation Prep, if it weren't for the direct influence of Coach Taylor. From the first time we met he had a team that was bought into the mission and displayed high character. The players and their sportsmanship is a direct correlation on how the head coach runs his program. Coach Taylor not only taught me how to receive that same type of dedication, but he truly led by example. He taught me the importance of communication with College Coaches and the promptness of arriving early to the games. This type of mentality has allowed Tribulation Prep to have earned the respect of many prominent Junior Colleges.

Myron Golden international business trainer who specializes in teaching people to create personal and business success

I have been involved with the game of basketball all my life and have spent 15 years as a Division 1 assistant coach and the past 5 as a High School Coach. I have coached NBA players as well as WNBA players and what I find very consistent is “character” it separates the “real from the unreal” and Coach Taylor is the man when it comes to “character”, so why wouldn’t he start up a Academy. I have known Adam for about 3 years but our paths crossed when I was a college coach and he was coaching at the college level as well. He has a passion for the unknown, he has a vision to help all level of kids fulfill any and all their dreams, whether it be a player on the high school level or that big dream of playing college basketball, Adam believes in character it shines in all darkness. Any kid is dreaming of playing and getting better, wanting exposure, learning how to play the game and has the passion to get better, should give Coach Taylor’s Academy a try. I love his vision on the recruiting aspect and his desire to network with all coaches on any level. It’s real and worth the investment, this is someone you can count on. I am looking forward to watching his dream development into one of the best things for kids.
 
-Arthur Prevost
Former Division 1 Assistant Coach (UTEP, UC Irvine, TCU, University of Minnesota, Georgia Tech and Lamar University)
I have had the pleasure to work with Coach Taylor for two years.
During those two years he taught me how to be a better leader on and
off the court. By taking time out of his day to talk to me, and
mentor me he has helped me reach my goals as a coach, and also a
leader. I have always like how Coach Taylor talks to his players, and
is able to build strong relationships with each player. I would send
my children to Coach Taylor for a workshop, or anything that he has
going on because I know they will be in good hands.
 
Robert Ware
Co- Founder of Real Athletics
Adam is a dedicated coach to the development of today’s youth. Adam is not only a good x’s and o’s coach, but even better communicator to help understand the fundamentals of the game. I look for great things to continue to happen with Character Prep and Adam’s coaching endeavors.

“I had the privilege of having Adam Taylor as an assistant on my staff for one year. He is, first of all, a class person and will teach your kids character as well as skills. He is extremely knowledgeable about the game and loves teaching it.  It doesn’t matter the age he has something for every group. You will not find a better teacher of the game. But more importantly, you will not find a better person to work with your athlete.”
