It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of Coach G (Gus Anifantis) this past Friday. Coach G was not just a coach but a pillar of our basketball program, embodying the values of selflessness, passion, and dedication to every player he mentored. His impact on our community extended far beyond the court, touching the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.


Throughout his tenure with us, Coach G's commitment to our players and his infectious energy inspired everyone around him. He instilled in our teams a spirit of teamwork, perseverance, and love for the game of basketball. His legacy will continue to live on through the countless lives he has touched and the memories we hold dear.


In honor of Coach G's memory and his dedication to our program, we are establishing a scholarship fund. This fund will support a graduating senior basketball player each year who exemplifies the same qualities that Coach G embodied: selflessness, passion, and dedication to their teammates and the game.We invite you to join us in remembering Coach G and celebrating his life by contributing to this scholarship fund. Your generosity will help us ensure that his legacy continues to inspire future generations of Jackson-Reed Tiger athletes.



Please keep Coach G's family and loved ones in your thoughts during this difficult time.
