1. So coach how do you feel about your team going into its second season in the ACPBL?
Very confident Justin. We've assembled a talented veteran team. Bombers are returning seven (7) ACPBL all-stars from last season (ACPBL MVP and Player of the Year Hugh Jones (6'3''-F-80) {C}, ACPBL leading scorer Marcus Fisher (6'4''-G/F-83, agency: Gamble Sports Management), Joseph Flegler (6'0''-G-85, college: Savannah St.) {C}, Camontae Griffin (5'9''-G-86, college: St.Mary's, MD), G Angelo Hernandez (6'3''-G, college: N.Carolina A&T) {C}, Jamaal Wise (6'5''-F-83, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Rhode Island) and F Ed Jones (6'7''-F-86, college: N.Carolina A&T); along with very skilled key contributors in Chris Darnell (6'9''-F/C-86, college: William & Mary) and Rogers Barnes (6'2''-G-86, college: Morgan St.) {C}. Having my healthy pure shooter in 6-4 G Darrian Lee (6'5''-G-78, college: Goucher) {C} returning from a season long injury from last year is a great addition.
We also added Johndre Jefferson (6'9''-F, college: S.Carolina), Lawrence Felder (6'9''-C-76, college: Salem Intern.), 6-7 F Stacey Daniels, Evan Martin (5'11''-G-83, college: Wesley), 6-5 F Gus Chase and Nate Flowers (6'5''-F-87, college: Oklahoma City). Losing a top scorer, who is one of my captains {C} and leaders in Steven Miles (6'2''-G-81, college: American), is a huge loss for us. We are big, fast, quick, talented, physical, unselfish and look forward to playing with bad intentions. Hopefully we will stay healthy and have a successful season.




2.What do you think about the new organizations to the ACPBL and the league as a whole?
The ACPBL has made great strides going into its second season. Commissioner James Schutz has added several new quality organizations/teams, divided the teams into geographic conferences, have upgraded the talent level significantly, and has marketed the league accordingly. The South conference that we play in includes 3 of the most proven talented and successful teams (Tru Hope Trailblazers, Delaware Destroyers and Beltway Bombers) in the country. I'm very much looking forward to the competition of this season, and hold high expectations as to the successful future of the ACPBL.





3.Coach your a competitor. What's it gonna take to get that chip that has alluded you in the EBA and the ACPBL. I know your chomping at the Bit?
Aggressive patience. I know those words counter each other, however, it has worked for me over these years. The formula and agenda has always been the same Justin. If you have very talented players with character; who are accountable, professional, unselfish, tough, have high basketball IQ's and swagger, play with passion, and who's only agenda is winning...you will win a lot of games and chips. I've been very blessed over 18 years of coaching at the pro level to have had, and currently have, those types of players. That formula and mindset has won us over 640 games and 44 chips over 18 years; beginning in my hometown of NYC, and most recently when I relocated to Maryland a few years ago. It's amazing how much a team can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit. The league has a lot of talent, great coaches and solid organizations. It's always very competitive. We always have one goal as a team...the chip. Winning every tournament we're in, along with the ACPBL championship, is our focus this, and every year.



4.With such a star studded cast of experienced players how do u keep them on the same page and with last seasons ACPBL MVP and the leading scorer from a year ago both on your roster?
They all have the same mindset of unselfishness, along with the sole goal of winning. As I alluded to prior, I am very mindful as to the type of players who I have on my team. Talent is just one component. All those other intangibles have to be included in a player for him to be one of my guys on the Bombers. I have a certain coaching style that challenges my players, and focuses on collective attacking and execution. 'Baby Shaq' and 'Fish' are two of the best players in the country. Most people see them as very explosive scorers. What I see are two very talented and unselfish complete players that only want to win. The best example of this is we had the MVP of the league along with the ACPBL's leading scorer last year. We also had 7 other players voted in as all-stars by opposing coaches. That is the big compliment to a team and organization that 9 of our 11 players were voted to the all-star game. We averaged 160 points a game last season. That requires a lot of big contributions from every player. Our eyes are clearly on the prize, and not on any individual accolades.

Chaz Dudley
Beltway Bombers - 4 months ago
The 2X American Professional Basketball League (APBL) champion Beltway Bombers do not use the the "defending ". Bombers CEO and Head Coach Chaz Dudley has instructed his players and assistant coaches to not say defending champs. "It connotates a defensive posture" says Coach Chaz. "What we accomplished last year in winning our 2nd APBL chip was a great achivement, but this season is a new journey. We are not defending, we instead are aggressively pursuing our 3rd". While the Bombers are d...   [read more]
