Middle School Boys Red Basketball

Team Overview

The MS Boys Basketball program at Tampa Prep is designed to challenge each boy to develop skills that will help him progress to the next level while fostering an appreciation and a love for the game of basketball. For the beginning player, our Gold team introduces boys to the basic skills and understanding of the rules and flow of the game. More advanced players play on the Red team to build on those basic skills and team strategies. They are challenged to compete at a higher level in the Florida West Coast League and participate in the end of season League Championship Tournament. Many of the players continue on to our varsity team.

John DeTringo

Coach DeTringo is also the Athletic Director for the Middle School. This position allows him to stay involved with his lifelong passion for sports and instill the positive values of teamwork and sportsmanship to all students at Tampa Prep. DeTringo was a four-year starter for his high school baseball and soccer teams, earning All-Conference awards in both sports. He played in Independent League Baseball after high school and soccer in college, however, he always enjoyed his third sport, basketball, the most. He had the least natural ability in that sport, so he had to work harder at it and did not make the Varsity team until his junior year of high school. That hard work and improvement made him appreciate his successes so much more. Today he tries to teach all of his students and scholar athletes to work hard at something, and the rewards will come, in everything they do.
