Victor P. Rogers

President of the marketing firm, STRIVE Communications, and Owner of Inspiring Hope Productions, a video creative and production company

Victor Rogers is President of the marketing firm, STRIVE Communications, and Owner of Inspiring Hope Productions, a video creative and production company. He is the Executive Producer of Team of Dreams, a reality TV show that seeks to replace the NBA stars model for USA Basketball with an open tryouts, multi-city tour to find the best unknown basketball talents seeking a second chance. Team of Dreams is in the proposal and consideration stage by several entities.

Victor has been a part of several initiatives promoting and supporting school choice options for inner city families. He continues to work to provide opportunities for all Americans but, especially, for those in underprivileged communities.

Victor played high school basketball for Morton West High School in Berwyn, Illinois – just outside of Chicago. In addition, he played and coached in recreational leagues in the Marine Corps, at the University of Illinois at Chicago and within the Chicago area.

In addition to basketball, his main sports passion is baseball. Playing on the high school, Armed Forces and college level, Victor has thoroughly enjoyed America’s game.

His primary role, however, is that of husband and father. As the father of a special needs child with a plethora of developmental and physical challenges and disabilities, he is dedicated to his family and spending as much time as possible with his disabled son.
