JP’s McKinney Teaches Student Athletes There’s More to Life Than Basketball

Timmance McKinney grew up in the Bromley Health apartments in Jamaica Plain. He readily admits he got involved with the wrong people in the ultra competitive youth basketball scene. Now at the age of 23, he's back after graduating college, coaching basketball locally, and started his own mentoring program to help student athletes avoid his own pitfalls. McKinney is currently the head coach of the St. Joseph's Preparatory School's junior varsity boys basketball team, and the assistant coach to the varsity squad.
