Hopla resides in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, with his beautiful wife, Carole, and beautiful daughter, McKenna.


"Dave is one of the all-time great shooting coaches. I continue to be amazed at his ability not only to shoot so well but also to teach others to do the same."Jim Calhoun--Former Head Men's Basketball Coach, University of Connecticut "Dave is not only the best shooter in the universe, he is also the best shooting coach." George Karl "I never miss an opportunity to work with Dave. He's the best in the business." Kobe Bryant "Dave has not only helped my shooting, but he improved my overall game. He has given me the confidence in all phases of my game." Ray Allen "He's a great motivator, man, especially when you're out there shooting the basketball. He's very positive, always going to tell you about your mechanics and what you're doing wrong. So his main thing is just consistency, doing the same thing over and over again." Carmelo Anthony
