Isaiah Davis is one of the top coaches, trainers, and youth basketball entrepreneurs in New England. A former student-athlete and graduate of Babson College, Coach ID currently owns one of the largest youth basketball companies on the east coast serving close to 1,000 boys and girls in his camps, clinics, programs and club teams, year-round. In addition to running a successful business, he has helped guide student-athletes to millions in scholarship offers at some of the best prep schools and universities in the country.
In the last two years, Isaiah has sent twenty-three kids to college on full-scholarships.
In addition, as Co-Founder of TEAM New England, Isaiah's mission is to push the path forward in youth basketball by going beyond the court and offering inner-city kids critical fundamental life lessons in: leadership, financial literacy, and test prep. All too often, kids identify with sports more than academics. Isaiah’s goal is to ensure his student-athletes have the access and resources to understand the importance of going beyond the court and becoming quality student-athletes and upstanding citizens.
