Andre Britton, Basketball Specialist
Under the tutelage of coaches Stan Dinner and Evander Ford, Britton played organized basketball in 1982 while attending Benjamin Franklyn High School in Manhattan. As a member of the Benjays, Britton was the starting shooting guard on a squad that went 27-2 (top 10 ranking in the country) and won both the citywide and state titles. Additionally, Britton made honorable mention all-city in just his second year of playing organized basketball. The following year, he finished his senior year at Georgia Christian School in Valdosta, Ga., in which he played for the great Mike Roller. Britton was the starting point guard on a squad that went 33-0, breaking the second national all-time consecutive win record at 118-0. Britton received many honors during his senior year, including player of the year, all-region and all-state selection, as well as MVP in both the regional and state championship games.
Britton began his college basketball career at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he played from 1983-1984. A year later, he transferred to Mercer County Community College (MCCC), located in West Windsor, New Jersey. While at MCCC, Britton played for junior college Hall of Famer Howie Landa. For two years, Britton was captain and starting point guard where he made numerous all tournament teams. During his career, he was regarded as one of the best guards in the country.
After a brief stint in Europe, Britton worked as an actor and held various positions in corporate America before realizing his true calling was coaching. After answering his calling, Britton began working with his brother’s company, Dbrittsports, a small company that facilitates summer professional basketball leagues, high school divisions, and basketball camps for both boys and girls.
Britton’s greatest joy is working with youth. Today, he can be found helping countless middle school and college students reach unparalleled new heights.
