"Your drive and commitment will be tested. The days will be long and hard. Those who truly love this sport will rise to the top."
- Head Coach, Rodrick Harrison



History

In 2011, Coaches Rodrick Harrison and Brian Scott partnered with Mount Zion Baptist Christian School, to form Mt. Zion Prep (MZP) School. Having coached with local schools and AAU programs in the Baltimore area, these natives witnessed many young athletes fall through the cracks. Together, they channeled their passion for sports and community to develop MZP. This program enables them to help athletes who may only require more time, attention, training, and coaching to reach their full potential.

• To educate players about their value and responsibility as student athletes and young men.
