Hello My name is Coach Ayodele Mims. I have been the Athletic Director here at Oakland Military Institute since June 2017. I am a native of Brooklyn, New York. I have a Bachelor's and Masters degrees in Kinesiology from Grambling State University in Louisiana. I've been an educator for 8 years( 7 of them in California ) at both Middle and High school levels. I've experienced great success while coaching Basketball as well as football in the Bay Area. I am a lifelong advocate of young people and the power that Athletics has to impart life lessons. My personal motto is "It can be done is good, Is done is better!"
