Bryant Sonsire Second Year, Varsity Assistant Coach
Coach Sonsire, will be entering his 2nd year as Varsity Assistant Coach for Lincoln-Sudbury. Although he has mainly coached for kids ages 9-13 across varying levels of competition, he has very much enjoyed the experience of coaching at the high school level under Coach Normant. Sonsire has played basketball since he was very young, and has played anywhere from black-tops and ill-lit gyms to high-level AAU ball. Although he dabbled on both JV and varsity as a freshman, his high-school career was cut short in 10th grade when philosophical differences with the head coach prevented him from returning. He is also currently averaging 14 points and 7 assists a game on his Thursday-night adult league team, due to his Nikola Jokic-style of play, and having only one bad knee instead of two, as is the case with most of the competition. Coach Sonsire's points of emphasis on-the-court for players are defensive awareness, rebounding, and high-IQ basketball, but he also loves getting physical in the paint while working on post moves. Points of emphasis off-the-court are focusing on school homework before basketball homework, being an up-standing and respectful representative for the basketball program, and getting a good night's sleep. Although he never played for Jeff Bzdelik or Danny Manning, Sonsire graduated from Wake Forest in 2015 with a degree in Neuropsychology and is currently getting his Master's in Applied Behavior Analysis through Western New England University. He is currently employed at the New England Center for Children; responsible for the day-to-day staffing and operation of 4 units within the Intensive Treatment Team, but is still awaiting his call-up from Brad Stevens.
