Defensive Player of the Year: David Burrell

“Defense wins championships,” we’ve all heard that before coming from coaches to sports analyst. If you don’t have that solid foundation of defense included into your game, it is a big missing piece as a player. One player in the No Excuses Houston Summer Pro League who has been causing a lot of problems for his opponents is, David Burrell.

He was named last year’s Defensive Player of the Year and was an intricate part of the championship team’s road to winning it all last year. David wanted to give some insight on his game and what he believes will occur this summer.

Q: What are your expectations and goals coming into this year’s No Excuses Houston Summer Pro League?

A: My expectations for this year are: win the championship, become a better all-around player, and be a role model to the kids that I train.
