WELL KNOWN CONYERS COURTKINGS ASSISTANT COACH//PRO SCOUT DONALD GOODSON DEPARTED THIS LIFE ON 08//21//2014 AFTER A LONG HARD BATTLE WITH CANCER. COACH GOODSON WAS A TREMENDOUS ASSET TO NOT ONLY THE COURTKINGS ORGANIZATION BUT TO  MANY YOUNG MEN WHO WERE ON THE BRINK OF THEIR DREAM OF PERFORMING AT THE NEXT LEVEL. SAYS COURTKINGS OWNER AND LONGTIME FRIEND EDDIE GIBSON

IT NOT EVERYDAY THAT YOU CAN WORK WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS IN A PROFESSION THAT YOUR BOTH LOVE AND ENJOY AND BOTH SHARE THAT SPECIAL PASSION FOR THE FIELD IN WHICH YOU BOTH OCCUPY SAY COURTKINGS OWNER EDDIE GIBSON. COACH GOODSON WAS A SPECIAL HUMAN BEING WHO WILL BE TREMENDOUSLY MISSED BY THE WORLD BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION AND THE CONYERS COURTKINGS. COACH GOODSON POSSESSED A KEEN EYE FOR TALENT AND HAD A KNACK FOR MENTORING THAT TALENT ONCE HE DISCOVERED IT----AGAIN A GREAT MAN, GREAT COACH, GREAT FATHER, GREAT FRIEND, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY AN EXCELLENT HUMAN BEING----COACH DONALD GOODSON MAY YOU REST IN PEACE
