Former Christ the King Standout, Hofstra Basketball King, NBA Champion, and Current Assistant Coach for the Hofstra Pride Men’s Basketball Team.
We pulled up at my alma mater, Hofstra University, to record with Coach Claxton to talk to his exploits on the Basketball court. We discuss his journey that took him from Corona, Queens, to the NCAA Tournament, his travels in the NBA, and what led him back home. All that and more, my conversation with Speedy, now.
Check out my swag yo, I walk like a ballplayer
No matter where you go, you are what you are player
And you can try to change but that’s just the top layer
One must strike the right balance between speed and quality.” – Clare Short
Catch every word I’m saying, no there’s no delaying
Don’t hesitate to motivate the crowd I’m not playing
Seeing is believing, you catch my drift?
Don’t try to adapt because I’m just too swift
– Erick Sermon
“Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Cause’ I’m coming home again.” – Chris Martin
