About Us

Our Team


Founded in 2019, KY Prep is determined to be a one of a kind atmosphere for serious student athletes. KY Prep focuses on one thing...YOU. We not only want to further your basketball skills, but we want to focus on areas like self management and how to manage your own money. 

While understanding that self management is important, we also understand that YOU need to be taken care of. Which is why WE SCHOOL, WE FEED, AND WE SHELTER. Another reason why our school is for YOU.


YOU are important. And when choosing Kentucky Prep, we promise to never exploit you. Our sponsor families understand how important this is. Your mental and physical health is our top priority. YOU are our top priority.

Meet Zak, Alysha and Leo.

Zak was born and raised in Murray, KY where he started playing basketball at a young age. Growing up with a basketball court in his back yard made it hard to turn down the love of the sport.

Zak graduated from Murray High School in 2005 where he was a serious student athlete. Zak not only has a passion for basketball, but he has a passion for all sports and the well-being of all student athletes.

Zak went on to pursue a career in dentistry where he graduated from Murray State University in 2011 with a degree in Business and Biology, and went on to graduate from the University of Kentucky Dental School in 2015.

Zak currently has two dental practices in Murray and Mayfield, KY. Though he loves what he does...his passion is Basketball. Zak truly understands the atmosphere that serious student athletes need to succeed. 

Zak's goal is to create the BEST environment for his athletes. He understands these students should be well taken care of and NEVER exploited! That is his promise! We feed. We shelter. We basketball.
