Kent has put together the most amazing senior showcase I have ever scouted and I have been witness to over 300 senior showcases. His kids hustled. His kids were intense. His kids executed. His kids were talented. His kids took no prisoners. From the brilliant opening scene with the brilliant Portia Boston (singer & movie star) to the end with Panda bear rising worship, I was standing and applauding this group. You don't get results like that unless the head coach (Kent Gash) possesses some or all of the following listed below. I'm sure he has all of those traits plus more. It was a pleasure to meet him after the show.
NYU at the New Studio on Broadway for Acting senior Ram Kanneganti's performance as a hopeful romantic is like the force of a thousand mountains.
Ram Kanneganti is often times mistaken by people for the infamous Russian bad boy, Johnny Fire---I Love this kid.
