He played for the Dominican National team at age 16 under coach Orlando Antigua. As an 8th grader his AAU squad was ranked 20th in the nation and consisted of area phenoms Edgar Sosa, Curtis Kelly and Kashif Pratt. When it came time to choose a H.S. he did it differently and took his talents across the George Washington bridge to Paramus Catholic H.S. There he would play for former Los Angeles Laker Tony Campbell and against many NCAA/NBA pros on his way up the hoops ladder. When it came time to go to the next level he accepted legend John Chaney’s recruitment offer and became a Temple Owl.
Today he’s an assistant coach on both the Stetson University Men’s basketball team and the Dominican National team. He oversees the Washington Heights Invitational Tournament every summer benefitting the Wash Heights community. Kicking off our Dominican mini-series today we’re joined by Luis Guzman.
