DFW Powerhouse join the Pro Basketball Association

Addison, Texas – The Pro Basketball Association has announced that DFW Powerhouse had been awarded a franchise for the 2021 PBA Spring-Summer Season. Team owner and GM Dale Perkins Jr. was born and raised in Kansas City and graduated from Raytown South High School in 2001 and went to Park University in Parkville, Missouri. Perkins was a former minor league player for the Metroplex Lightning. After his playing career, Perkins was an Assistant Coach for the North Dallas Vandals from 2012-2013 and then spent several years coaching in China for Beijing and for Shenzhen ZQP Basketball Club and SUPAHOOPS.

Perkins brings organizational leadership to the equation having been the Owner of Life Combat Training since 2017 and President of DFW Powerhouse since 2018 and is well rounded in each aspect of operations including working as an official for the last 19 years. A proud father of daughter, Divine Joy Perkins, “DJ” has been instrumental in the DFW basketball scene since 2010. Dale Perkins Jr. was named Pro Basketball Association Vice President of Conduct and Community Awareness in December of 2020.

“Dale is a personal friend of mine. We’ve known each other for years and spent a lot of time talking about the game of basketball and changing the sport for the better at the minor league level. He’s one of the first people I called when we started working out details of forming the league and he was a part of the first group announced in executive management at the league level last year. His taking that vision forward with his brand and putting his own team in the league is really just a culmination of what we’ve been working so hard for the community, for the players, for the referees, and coaches. We really just want something that everyone can be proud of and use as a platform to the next levels. I can’t think of a person who is more genuine, he doesn’t pull punches, and will tell you exactly what he’s thinking. He’s direct, sincere, and his aspirations for his guys is heartfelt. He puts love into the game of basketball and is excellent at using it as a vehicle for personal growth on and off the basketball court. A+ human being. Couldn’t be happier that he’s a big part of what we’re doing in the PBA.” PBA Commissioner Chris Terrell
