Team Takeover CEO Keith Stevens is one of the most influential people in the basketball world that most average fans have never heard of.
His Nike sponsored grassroots program is annually one of the nation’s best with dozens of alums competing both professionally and in college, and over 20 coaching alums having now moved on to college staffs.
Stevens is a mentor to numerous other grassroots directors across North America and has one of the best networks in basketball at any level. Most recently Stevens has taken a leadership role in the fight for social injustice and racial inequality. Team Takeover hosted close to 100 college coaches including 10 or more high-major head coaches and 3 national championship coaches for a 3 day virtual seminar entitled A Long Walk with Team Takeover.
