About us


The mission of Put God First Basketball is to develop fundamentally sound basketball players through detailed, knowledgeable, and dynamic teaching, demonstrations and innovative drills.  PGF Basketball is a fostering environment for players and coaches alike. Our skill trainers strive to be positive role models for athletes, promoting life skills such as persistence, hard work, and commitment and of course putting God first through the game of basketball. Our major goal is to help each client get a Division I or Division II scholarship as well as be prepared for life. PGF Basketball began humbly in January 2012 under Michael Rodgers in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area.

In an effort to enrich the lives of the underprivileged youth we give back to the community by partaking in community events, fundraising, and PGF Basketball  4hour basketball camp once a month.

We form a partnership with the player and the player’s parents to tailor a coaching program to the player’s individual goals. We also train teams, groups, schools, and travel to perspective clients as needed. Let us tailor a plan to meet your needs!


“Greatness does not happen by dreaming about it. It happens through the blood, sweat, and tears of working on your craft. Preparing for that moment…and trusting in the work you put in is how greatness happens…..”

-Michael Rodgers
