Movin’ Mav & Dallas Mav

Dr. Abu Yilla is a Kinesiology professor who advocates for the widening acceptance of sport different than just the big three. He played for the Dallas Wheelchair Mavericks, the UTA Movin’ Mavs and U.S. and Britain National Paralympic Teams. As an ex-professional wheelchair basketball player and awarded athlete who moved from abroad, he brings a unique perspective to the table challenging his students to broaden their minds and question their current mindsets. Dr. Yilla teaches three classes at UTA, including Sociology of Sport where his students enjoy the ability to speak freely and have open debate.
