Meet The Team

Rudy Brown

President & Pro Skills Trainer

Coach Rudy Brown, the Founder and President of Genesis Hoops, graduated from the Wharton School of Business at the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania, where he excelled as a Division 1 student-athlete. As an impressive talent in multiple sports coming out of High School, Rudy‘s decision to attend Penn and play football in college, instead of basketball, was mostly due to the school’s record as the #1 business school in the nation. However, Rudy‘s sports career continued to soar in college. While playing Defensive Back at Penn, Rudy was an integral part of 3 Ivy League Championship football teams, being named Defensive Rookie of the Year, and named to First Team All Ivy. After college Rudy was able to return to the hardwood as a basketball trainer with a premier East Coast training company, and began applying his relentless work ethic and passion to improving the skills, mental fortitude, and disciple of future stars. He has been blessed with the opportunity to work with some of the best trainers in the industry, and a healthy list of players of all skills levels, from beginners to professionals. Rudy views his work with Genesis as a God given opportunity to positively impact lives, give players a solid foundation of good habits, and, with each interaction, he sets out to convey the core Genesis philosophy and life principle: "Good Isn’t Enough... BE GREAT!
