High School

Posted On: 04/5/18 7:07 PM

A torn ACL wiped out Alex Trombley’s junior campaign, but the 2018 guard turned in a fine senior year for Gulf Coast.

He called it a memorable one since it was his lone season playing varsity basketball. The 6’2″, 170-pounder says he learned a ton from assistant coach Pat Monti, a guy who won multiple high school championships during his playing days.

No offers have come for Trombley, but he’s drawn interest from La Verne and Montclair State.

He pointed to his understanding of the game, tempo and shooting as his biggest strengths. He wants to continue to improve his ball handling skills.

Trombley had five games with 20 or more points including a 28-point outing in a win over Naples First Baptist on Dec. 21. He had only eight games with 10 or less points as the Sharks went 17-8 on the year.

Whether he’s playing basketball or not at the next level, Trombley is intrigued by the idea of studying health sciences in college.

Unfortunately for Trombley, he only was able to showcase his game for one season. However, he worked endlessly at his craft averaging 13.3 points per game and 5.0 rebounds per game. Trombley will look to latch on somewhere.
