Gary played in the Dallas Pro AM League against some of the best professional basketball players in the country. While playing in the Dallas Pro AM League, Gary had a role in a movie with Nancy Lieberman, a former professional basketball player who played and coached in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). In the movie Gary and Nancy played professional basketball players who took their Dallas basketball team to a championship. The movie was call Perfect Profile. Perfect Profile was very memorable for Gary, so when it came time to naming the company and the product, it just made sense to name them ”Sports Profiles.”

Roger was the assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Atlanta Hawks. Gary volunteered his services and worked with Roger in the pre-practice pick-up games before Coach Lenny Wilkens would start practice.

After playing in the Dallas Pro AM League, Gary had an opportunity to play for and with Marques Haynes as a Harlem Magician. It was a dream come true. He learned so much from Mr. Haynes about life, business and of course basketball.
