Head Coach of Atmosphere Academy Charter School, Bronx NY


SG Anthony Magistre 

Manhattanville College

Is our best three point shooter by far scored 1,000 points for Manhattanville College. He is a deadly shooter and a great passer and dribbler and a great person off the court. Oh yeah there is no shot he doesn't like. 

PG Elvin Rodriguez Denver University

We have never seen anyone more explosive then E5. The dude on the break is a dunk away from making the NBA. His athleticism is like Russell Westbrook.

Desi Rodriguez F Seton Hall

We had Desi as a 16 year old a skinny left handed Small Forward with a three point shot and a slasher with uncanny scoring ability. He will be in the NBA one day trust me. He has all the tools.

Alex Tucci F Manhattanville College

Versitile Big Man who can shoot threes and penetrate to the hole another 1,000 point scorer for the Valiants at Manhattanville. Has an invite to play overseas. Good Shooter even a better scorer.

Daquan Richardson  F (Mercy College)

Dey Dey Richards averaged a team-high 17.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game for Mercy College. He is the most athletic street ball player I ever seen. He is an amazing finisher on the break and a shot blocker as well. This summer he has had several 40 or more point games in Dyckman, Watson and Gun Hill Tournaments.
