Friday, May 9, 2008

SHREVEPORT—Centenary head men’s basketball coach Greg Gary has announced the signing of Daman Starring to a National Letter of Intent. Starring is Gary’s first signee since taking over at the helm of the Gents basketball program on April 11th.


Starring, a 6-foot-4 guard from El Toro High School in Lake Forest, Calif., guided the Chargers to a 24-4 record overall and a 9-1 mark in the Sea View League this season. His team won the league championship and advanced into the state playoffs where they lost in the second round. He was selected as a first team member of the All-Conference team and had received Best Defensive Player and Most Valuable Player awards in his prep career.


“Daman is a physically strong guard who is a great defender and an unselfish player,” said Gary. “He has an exceptional basketball I.Q., is very competitive, and I feel he can contribute to our team immediately. I am extremely happy for him to be my first signing since coming to Centenary.”


Although living in California, Starring’s family are no strangers to Louisiana. His mother, Tammy, played college basketball at McNeese State in Lake Charles.


“I am looking forward to playing at the Division I level and I think I have a good opportunity to play right away,” said Starring. “I really felt comfortable on my visit to Centenary and I’m excited about playing for the Gents.”
