Meet the Owner of 2nd To None
Out of Swan Valley High School, a young baller took the court with a love for the game that would not be denied. From being over looked, questioned and under rated, Matt Parks now is dedicated to proving that young athletes can accomplish anything that they put their mind to.
The Vikings’ standout hooper finished his high school career twice a district champion, Co-MVP, a top shooter in the state, along with being named an All-State honorable mention performer.
Parks continued athletically and academically on the collegiate level at North Park University in Chicago, Illinois before finishing his career competing for Northwood University.
Now, Matt continues to push himself and his athletes in challenging and fun training environments.
He served as the player development coach in 2019 for the Delta College Pioneers men's basketball team and is currently on the coaching staff at Great Lakes Christian College as Head of Player Development. Through his experiences Matt turned his love for the game into skill development and athletic performance training to help players at all levels reach their specific goals.
2nd to None has worked with numerous athletes of all ages and skill levels throughout the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas including: Trevor Bohnhoff (Michigan State Men's Basketball), Breanna Short (Concordia University Women's Basketball), Victoria Jankoska (Michigan State Women's Basketball, WNBA draft pick) and James Johnson (Badajoz, Espagne Basketball League).
I was struggling with my shot in game and Matt helped me fix my form and develop quicker release. He helped me become an all around and more consistent shooter.
