Lester graduated from Highlands High School in 1998. After serving our country as an Active Duty Marine he returned to the area and was an assistant coach for the varsity girls at Foothill High School from 2004 to 2006. He then went on to coach at the AAU level until joining the Golden Eagle program as the Freshman assistant coach in 2017.


Lester is married to his amazing wife Melissa and they have three children, Aaliyah (17), Nathan (14) and Nevaeh (8).


Lester is excited to be apart of the Del Oro Basketball legacy and wants to help build it into a premier program. He enjoys not only helping athletes grow their game but grow as individuals. Coach Elliott feels that it is an honor to be entrusted with that responsibility.


"Teamwork makes the dream work!!" is one of his favorite sayings.
