Chad Songy first attended a PGC Basketball session as a high school athlete in 2002 and has been applying PGC's concepts and principles to his life and his basketball game for nearly a decade.
Chad was truly an efficient and versatile point guard at Millsaps College, where he finished his career ranked in several categories: fourth in assists, fourth in three-point field goals made, and third in both free-throw percentage (.836) and three-point field-goal percentage (.409). He was a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) All-Conference player and a 2009 Nominee for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award, given to the best male point guard throughout all NCAA Divisions. As a 5'8" point guard, Chad was sometimes physically outmatched, but rarely outsmarted. The exceptional leadership skills Chad developed at PGC helped him to succeed as the starting point guard on Millsaps College's most successful team in both school and conference history. The 2007-2008 Majors finished the season 28-4, losing to the eventual Division III national champions in the Elite Eight after Chad kept their magical season alive by hitting a buzzer-beating three-pointer to help his school reach the NCAA's Sweet Sixteen. Chad's pursuit for excellence has never been confined solely to the basketball court. A Magna Cum Laude graduate with a double major in Economics and Business Administration, he was selected twice by ESPN: The Magazine as an Academic-All Region Selection. Chad is the founder of Sustainable Giving Homes which uses real estate profits from homes in Austin, TX, and Cape Town, South Africa, to fund educational opportunities for students throughout Africa, including PGC's sponsorship of the MCF Sports Center in Kenya. He also teaches throughout the year through a variety of projects he has founded that include stand up comedy, cultural growth experiences to Africa, and mentoring young leaders and entrepreneurs. Chad is a course director on the PGC tour and assists in PGC's training of both Directors and Staff. What They're Saying About Chad "I learned how to improve my game at PGC, and I also learned how to make my team better. Without this knowledge, I would not have been close to the level of a university basketball player. However, what is really special is how you made me a better person. Chad, you took a ball and a net and somehow changed the way I live and think. I believe without a doubt Chad Songy is the best TEACHER of the game that I've ever listened to speak. He did an excellent job in the classroom and on the court. - Coach Bill Russell, North Mississippi "WOW, I have so much I want to say in regard to my experience at PGC. I'll begin first with Director Chad Songy. As an educator, I am fully aware how difficult it can be to keep students fully engaged from beginning to end. Chad Songy's approach led me to want to learn more: great real-life stories, funny, inspiring, and an uncanny ability to create and maintain a high-energy environment. Thank you Chad. "Chad made such a difference in my daughter's attitude. She absolutely loved PGC. There hasn't been anyone that could inspire her, motivate her, or even push her to do anything. But Chad was able to motivate and inspire her. "My son, Grayson, attended the PGC Shooting College this past weekend with Chad. Grayson was so excited about what he learned that he read his notes to me at dinner the first night back home. PGC taught Grayson how to THINK and to THINK differently. While watching him play recently, I realized I was watching a WILD Animal. He wasn't the ZOO animal any longer. Chad, you gave him permission to be that wild animal.

Chad: A cure for Stinky Bracket Syndrome
Our resident expert is Chad Songy and he will be going up against Tayarisha in a predict-off to determine once and for all whether it's better to be oblivious or informed when it comes to picking tournament games. Chad was a point guard at the Division III level for Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, finishing his illustrious career with 296 assists and a 2.77 assist to turnover ratio. In his senior season he was nominated for the Bob Cousy award, given to the best male point guard in the nation across all divisions, along with being awarded conference player of the year in the SCAC. He now works full time as a director and clinician for the highly acclaimed Point Guard College. Chad has been closely watching and analyzing approximately 16 hours of Division I NCAA men's basketball per week since the November. Chad Songy says Michigan State "because of experience and coaching. Chad believes Mich. St. will prevail in a close matchup, but he wishes star point guard Kalin Lucas were playing; Tayarisha doesn't know who Kalin Lucas is. Chad says in moments of extreme pressure, players revert to their dominant habits, where Kansas State has the edge. (I wholeheartedly agree with Chad's reasoning here, which is why I'm going with Cornell: because Chad picked Kentucky.) Washington vs. #2 West Virginia:* TP says Washington for literally no reason. CS says West Virginia because their defense is ridiculous and he says they've proven that they can win close games. Chad says games are either won by two or three, eight or nine, or 15 or 16.
