Anthony “Yoda” Drago was the best training coach and motivator I ever had because his teachings went way beyond basketball. It wasn’t about just preparing me to abandon bad habits but making sure I created and became accustomed to new ones. It wasn’t about just learning how to move my body properly but how to properly move my life toward the right path. Sometimes I cried tears of joy and sometimes tears of pain. All of the sacrifices he made to make my time in New York enjoyable was appreciated and will always be appreciated. You see those movies about people saving / changing other people lives, Yoda did that for me. And for that I will forever be grateful.

My brother from another mother, Anthony Drago, is and will continue to be a person that stands out from the rest when it comes to developing our youth. His passion and attention to detail is unlike anything I have ever seen in the basketball world. I have traveled all over this country and worked with some of the top trainers and coaches out there and the one thing I can say with complete conviction is that you would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated person than Anthony focused on developing our youth to be as successful off the court as they are on the court. That is why everyone needs a copy of his book “Go Prove Something! A Basketball Players Guide to Legally Using PEDs”.

I recently had to privilege of reading “Go Prove Something! A Basketball Players Guide to Legally Using PEDs” by Anthony Drago. This book is a slam dunk! Anthony is a premier basketball athletic skills coach and his book has the basketball edge to it but I don’t care if you play another sport, are a businessman, or someone just wanting to change your life…this book is a must. Anthony does what most don’t when writing a book about sports, he addresses the mind, body, and skills needed to succeed. I highly recommend this book for student/athletes as well as coaches and trainers. The straight forward strategies Anthony uses will help you develop a roadmap to success!

I had the pleasure of meeting Anthony Drago several years ago when he was on the Tottenville High School basketball team. At that time he was a hard working individual who demonstrated true leadership qualities. 15 years later he worked as a coach and mentor with my Shoot for Success basketball training program. He trained some of my top Division 1 players which I believe helped get them to the next level. Through his experiences he has now been able to translate his journey in a captivating story to share with the world. I know “Go Prove Something! A Basketball Players Guide to Legally Using PEDs” will be an inspirational story for anyone at any level to relate. I am looking forward to reading it again because he has the tools to extract greatness from anyone open to receiving his powerful message.
