At age 12, Ganon hit a bump in the road when he broke his little finger on his shooting hand. Turning the obstacle into a challenge, he applied the same intense work ethic and developed his left non-shooting hand. After his right hand was healed, Ganon suddenly found himself with two scoring weapons.
This is how he became an ambidextrous shooter. Ganon received offers from over 20 Division I schools and chose Duquesne University in In addition, Ganon played briefly for summer leagues in Austria and France and for many pro-am leagues here in the states.
After college, Ganon decided to further his education. While in graduate school, Ganon started his coaching career as a graduate assistant.
