At 7-4, Stretch is the third-tallest player in team history behind former Globetrotters Tiny Sturgess (7-8) and Dut Mayar (7-6).
Given his height, it’s not surprising Stretch mentions Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal as the two sports figures that have influenced him the most. One thing he shares with Shaq is breaking a backboard while dunking. Stretch and teammate Jet Williams each shattered a backboard on dunks in the same game in Ecuador late in 2012.
Basketball hasn’t been his only athletic endeavor. Stretch has also played baseball and tennis (imagine standing across the net waiting for him to serve to you), and to stay in shape, he swims and jumps rope – it’s a pretty long rope.
Stretch also plays acoustic guitar and writes songs, and he is really into computer technology. Someday he would like to work for a computer company, creating new products.
