Xavier started his coaching career in 1986 with Reston Youth Basketball, and was a mainstay in the development of local talent in the Reston area. Such names as Grant Hill (NBA Hall of Fame), Joey Beard (Barcelona Spain Euro league), Doug Mcloughlin-Williams (Derby Trailblazers, UK) and Lansdale McAllen (Florida International) have played on teams that Xavier has coached.
