As the press conference got started today, I looked at the body language and eye movement of the new Atlanta Hawks Head Coach. I looked to see if he would be overwhelmed by the moment, or just take it all in stride. The latter took place and it seemed as if Coach Lloyd Pierce has been patiently waiting for this moment for years.

Lewis Preston, Financial Solutions Consultant for ABM Industries
Lewis Preston has been coaching collegiate basketball for more than 17 years, but it wasn’t until he transitioned out of basketball that he realized how much of an impact the game had on his life. His life in basketball started as a senior in high school at Franklin County High School in Rocky Mount, Virginia. The new coach, Ed Holstrom, spotted Lewis on the marching band practice field and asked him to try out. Lewis continued his playing career at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). After graduating from VMI with a degree in history, Lewis played professional basketball overseas for four years. He played in Luxembourg, Ireland and Finland.
