My name is Betty Mayfield-Sly, My grandson Jelani is a member at X3 Sports and attends Mr. Breon Smiley’s boxing class, (Coach Smiley I would be remiss not to share my family and grandson’s wonderful experience since joining your facility).
Coach Smiley is a very special person and an inspiration to so many kids, but in particular, he continues to make a lasting and positive impression on my grandson Jelani. Mr. Smiley is a great role model and mentor to all of the kids he coaches. He is an amazing coach and an amazing man in that he truly cares about the children who he trains. Before Jelani joined X3 Sports, he could not jump rope or run very fast. After training with Mr. Smiley for about 9 months, Jelani not only managed to come in 2nd in the 100 and the 200 meter dash in track, he also qualified this summer (2013) for USATF Jr. Olympic in Florida.
It would be Jelani’s first time on a track field, and I contribute all of Jelani’s success to Coach Smiley, who is an outstanding coach and possesses an undeniable love for his work.
I thank you, for your leadership and your outstanding team at X3 Sports for being professionals and for all that you do. Your service is no less than an A+ rating. My family and I look forward to having a successful, exciting, and wonderful experience at X3 Sports in the years to come.*
