Film Room TVby Brett Ledbetter
What happens when you score a lot of points? You get a lot of attention. When you receive that attention, it’s positive reinforcement for what you’re doing. Unfortunately, that reinforcement is also the reason that I never had true team success. (Championships) I was too selfish. And, it wasn’t until meeting my mentor Neil Dougherty, that I was exposed to the right way on how to approach and play the game.
Neil transformed my mind, in a way, only he could. He connected me to NBA players, college coaches, and best-selling authors to ask the questions I never had answers to and I developed a strong passion to pass those lessons along to players and parents in the youth space to improve their basketball experience.To date, I am proud of the fact that I am able to equip players with the skills they need by teaching them footwork that makes them successful. But I’m more proud of the fact, that we are able to bring all of the people that have contributed to our FilmRoomTV project to our players to help advance their mindset and prepare them for life after basketball.
Brett is the founder of Ledbetter Academy, a basketball skills training program that takes a scientific approach to youth development. Through his mentor, Neil Dougherty, he was connected with NBA players, college coaches, and best-selling authors to ask the questions he never had answers to as a player. Developing a strong passion for to pass those lesson on to players and parents in the youth space, he learned how to edit video to piece together the lessons for the players in the academy. The FilmRoomTV project has evolved (now over 130+ interviews) into a full program to help advance the players mindset and prepare them for life after basketball.
