A ferocious young leader that doesn’t accept failure.  His work with young student-athletes is some of the best dedication I have seen in over 40 years in profession. He gets the job done!!!

This is a brother that took my son in on his team and helped him in a time of need.  He is a leader that drives people to be the very best he can be.  He is a tireless soldier in giving a second chance to those who need it.  Always grateful for his actions towards my son.

Mark  is talented, insightful, and caring…as a coach, trainer, and a human being. His background in academic settings, writing, research and as a Urban Trauma Specialist gives him much-deserved credibility and a real edge as a coach. It’s been a privilege to work with Coach James.

I have worked with Mark on several training projects. Our collaborations continuously confirm Mark is a gifted speaker, trainer, and mentor. He has an innate ability to create fun, productive environments during in-person and web-based settings. Evaluations and evidence based training data repeatedly validate his ability to successfully convey extensive tacit and implicit learning outcomes time and time again.

When Mark James speaks…people listen.  They listen because God has given him a divine skill-set that sets him in another stratosphere as a agent of change.  If you want your team, organization, or school system to streamline innovative out-of-the-box thought, this is your man. He has turned down many lucrative opportunities to stay and work for the people and communities in which he finds great value.  A leader and a giant amongst men.

Coach James has a great impact on my life.  When everyone doubted me and said that I would not be able to play  college ball after a serious injury, he still put his faith in me. Not only did I start for 23 consecutive games my redshirt Junior and Senior year but I also made all Conference. If it was not for him I would not have been able to do such a thing. Not  only did he influence me on the football field but in academics he pushed me to attend graduate school where I will receive a master’s in public administration. Most importantly Coach James taught me many things about manhood and how integrity, responsibility, and accountability are key aspects of being a man.
