Elbert L. Ellis, Jr.

Lead Scout & Head Recruiter

I am Elbert Lee Ellis, Jr.  I am from Durham, NC and a product of Durham Public Schools.  Growing up as a young man in Durham, I was always known as the kid that did not talk.  I was very shy, and I was very introverted.  The one thing that broke me out of my shell was playing sports.  My community saw that I excelled in Athletics.  My sport’s career took off because of the track society called Durham Striders.  While attending the Illustrious Hillside High School, I earned All-American honors 2 consecutive years in a row. That’s just brief synopsis of what I would to share at your institution of learning.  I would love to encourage your student body by sharing personal testaments that I had to endure. Which made me a better MAN.  I am now sharing my story with people about the up and downs and struggles that I incurred on my journey.  This was mandated by fellow professional athletes, coaches, teachers, students, and colleagues.  I must pay-it-forward to help the upcoming generation.

I am a dedicated, resourceful, innovative educator with 24 years of experience.  My background includes and not limited to be the Dean of Discipline, with having a Physical Education/Health and Sociology background.  I combine the two by providing the physical aspects while working on how to provide strategies to cope on an everyday basis.

I maintain a passion for instilling in children the importance of lifelong learning, health and fitness.  To serve as a role model through extensive participation in fitness activities, coaching of competitive (basketball/field and track), and noncompetitive activities with a focus on sportsmanship, physical strength, endurance and flexibility.  I strive to help students change marginal grades into good grades and support colleagues and administration in facilitating each child’s social and intellectual and behavioral growth by creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and open communication.  I also assist students and student athletes obtain academic and athletic scholarships for higher learning institutions.
