Our Warrior Program continues its tradition of churning out college-level players with every passing season. The 2018-19 season will feature 3 new additions to the Collegiate Ranks: Emmanuel Dowuona playing for coach Matt Painter at Purdue University, Sebastian Guitian at Palm Beach Atlantic University for coach David Balza, and James Ametepe who will be staying home and playing for FIU and coach Jeremy Ballard.
Coach Amat has built a network throughout the years and is constantly producing “next-level” prospects in a system built upon defensive excellence and high character athletes. “I am extremely blessed with the opportunity to coach and influence the lives of so many young student-athletes, especially in a Christian atmosphere.” Coach Jose Amat.
Our Warrior Program has been proudly represented at the following: FGCU/Palm Beach Atlantic/MDC/The Sage College/FIU/TTU/Geneva College/St.Thomas Univ/Purdue/Eastern New Mexico St/ASA College/Montclair State/Oakland State/Broward College/Johnson&Wales/Salem International/Pitt-Bradford and more!
This upcoming season will feature a new cast of hungry, self-driven players. With only 1 returning senior on the squad, the “Young-Guns” will be relied on heavily to learn quickly and develop while getting quality minutes.
Gabriel Fajardo (c/o 2020) has come on board to provide a major offensive punch to the line-up while also getting the opportunity to “lead by example” and display his array of skills.
Javaris Rolle (c/o 2021) is another student-athlete that will be given the chance to carry a heavy load this year, as he brings toughness, grit, and high-level skill to the team.
Ralph Rodriguez, Diego Rivera, and freshman stand-out Jose Amat III all return for this season’s backcourt, with newcomer Alex Gonzalez (c/o 2022) joining them as well.
With the Lord’s Blessings and Guidance our Warriors will once again rise to all challenges and thrive both on and off the court. Coach Amat continues to keep the emphasis on having our players become the very best Christian-student-athletes they can be and with that comes success.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Team Verse: Proverbs 3: 5-6
Our Warrior Program has much gratitude to the many assistant coaches who have helped throughout the years in making “Warrior-Basketball” a name known throughout Florida. Coach Amat has had the opportunity to not only influence many student-athletes but also a number of adults who have gone on and reached success in many aspects of life. In turn he is very thankful for what he has learned because of these special individuals.
