Silver Lake College head men's basketball coach Derek Domino received the Outstanding Recent Alumni Award at the college's annual Alumni Awards Dinner in the Ariens Atrium on March 8.
The 2014 Silver Lake College graduate was a captain and point guard on the men's basketball team during his senior year at Silver Lake College. He served as the assistant coach during the 2014-2015 season and took over the head coaching duties for the 2015-2016 season.
Derek enjoyed a standout high school basketball career and was able to learn valuable coaching perspectives from several top coaches. He brings those skills to the Lakers and is excited to continue building the basketball program here.
The South Florida native graduated from Silver Lake College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management. After graduating, he became an accountant in the college's finance office. He was recently promoted to assistant registrar (in August 2016 he transitioned to being the head men's basketball coach and assistant athletics director).
He plans to graduate with his Master's Degree in Management and Organizational Development in May 2016.
