FYI This guys coached at LA Elite this Summer it is a shame how Russell Payne has kept quiet the entire time!
: : : : : : : : : If your son was playing with Starting 5 in Santa Clarita please make sure your son wasn't coached by this guy. Damn shame. Parents need to be careful who you give your most valuable asset to.

: : : : : : : : Not just Starting Five. He coaches at West Ranch, Valencia, Trinity, Impact and Kenny Smith Aim High.
: : : : : : : : This is the 2nd or 3rd sicko coach in Santa Clarita to get caught hurting kids. Remember Randolph Jackson? The worse part is that there are spoiled rich kids defending the abuser.
: : : : : : : : These kids have been abused and they are confused. I can't attack them.
: : : : : : : Also never coached at Aim High or Impact. Other teams he's coached Rise and SCV Lightning.
: : : : : : This is terrible news for the Basketball Community in general and especially the victims. But this can happen anywhere by anyone. Some other recent situations of wrong doing that I can recall in youth basketball:

: : : : : That Cash guy was recently posting on this board
: : : : Come on now Santa Clarita is not a messed up place. He was now working in Orange County. Does that make Orange County a messed up place too? Unfortunately this type of disgusting behavior happens everywhere. This loser also coached SCV Next Level. Parents please talk to your kids and notify the police if he did anything to your kids.
: : : ::: A concern of mine involves Starting5. Of their founding 5 coaches, one is fired from his high school job for taking bribes from parents for playing time and now this. I will be pulling my son from this program.
: : : it kind of says a lot about that Program. And they aren't any good at the job of putting teams together so why have your child around a serial child abuser and a con artist. Just saying.
: ^You should be ashamed of yourself. Ok... "Starting Five" isn't what they market themselves to be. Ok. Most people in the basketball community knows this. But you're using a child abuser as an opportunity to bash an organization because of your personal agnst?
: I'm going to go out on a limb and say that "Starting 5", like the ton of other schools and organiations in Santa "wtf is going on here" Clarita, didn't know that the coach was abusing kids.
: It's disgusting that you're using this for your motive. Look, I've spoken about several bad places; Chaminade, Notre Dame... Village Chr is the worst. But if kids were being abused at Village Christian I'd be more concerned with the kids and not the idiotic adults there.
