Above, Doolin with the Texas D-1 Ambassadors was the consummate competitor in the 5 years he played for the D-1 Nation.  Although always at the top of the statistical heap, it was championships that Doolin was noted for. Perhaps most notable were the back to back Kingwood Classic Championships that Doolin led the D-1 Ambassadors to when Kingwood was noted as the #1 Tournament in the entire country.  Las summer alone he was an integral part of championships in the Great American Shootout (Austin, TX), Atlantic Slam (Myrtle Beach, SC), Memorial Day (Birmingham, AL).

In addition to the basketball accomplishments, Cody was the ultimate student-athlete taking all AP courses at Austin Westlake, a nationally acclaimed school.  He is the son of Jim & Becky Doolin.  I was proud to have had the oppportunity to coach Cody.  Best of luck as you head to the University of San Francisco to play for former Kansas PG Rex Walters.
