Answering a question about the national team, the trainer popularly known as “Rubberman” opted to play the long game instead of quick fix solution.

Coach Quaye trains youngsters in Tema on Saturday mornings.

“Let’s go to the youth 14, 15 years and we set a bigger goal so that we can achieve something better…we should set a bigger goal, we shouldn’t rush to anything that will take us to success. We have a long way to go, we shouldn’t set a shorter goal” he said.

Coach Quaye’s statement reflects sharply on his weekly training sessions with youngsters at the Tema Community 4 Court to aid their development in the sport.

He is the founder and Coach of Tema Youth Basketball Club.
