Afriye Phillips, LLC
Create a future that's bigger than just you.
Afriye Phillips is a real champion. He has done what many of us only dream of doing. He worked hard and beat the odds to reach his goal of becoming a professional basketball player. Then in a surprise second act, left the NBA to work and serve the Denver community as an educator and entrepreneur. All before turning 30.
Afriye Phillips grew up in Denver, the Denver most people simply never consider. He and his family lived in a community where gun violence and gangs were a reality of everyday life, even as early as primary school. Like many boys his age, Afriye dreamed of playing in the NBA. But after working at it for years, he didn’t even make it onto his college team at Oral Roberts University. Nevertheless, his unyielding commitment eventually earned him a spot on the development team for the Dallas Mavericks. And that’s where his story pivots. Whereas “going pro” is the typical climax for elite athletes, for Afriye Phillips, it served as an opportunity to act on one of the core values instilled in him by his mother: To create a future that’s bigger than just you.
A powerful communicator and servant-leader, Afriye leveraged his “NBA celebrity” along with his experience, insights and relationships to further invest in his community as both an educator and an entrepreneur. Afriye Phillips serves as a basketball coach to two area schools. He is also an active member of the ACE Scholarship Alumni board. In 2019, he opened Hoops Academy, a training ground that uses the discipline of basketball to help young people develop stronger minds and bodies.
