HIGH POINT — Former Andrews player Cory Dumas has been named boys basketball coach at his alma mater. He replaces Cleaver Rennie who stepped down after going 72-102 in seven seasons with the Red Raiders.
Dumas is a native of High Point who excelled in four sports at Andrews: basketball, football, soccer and track. He attended N.C. A&T, where he was a member of the Aggies' basketball team.
"Because of his strong ties to the Greensboro and High Point communities, his selection promises stability and a commitment to the success of our student-athletes," Andrews athletics director Rod Pitt said in a news release today. "Coach Dumas is firm believer in his faith and has a passion for motivating and inspiring others to be their best."
In 2011, Dumas joined the coaching staff at Calvary Baptist Day School as a varsity assistant coach. In 2014, he became the junior varsity head coach. Before coaching, Dumas worked for the City of High Point as a senior lead director in the parks and recreation department.
"I am home, and this is the place I want to be," said Dumas, who teaches at the Middle College at UNCG.
In 2012, Dumas became head coach of the 17U Triad Defenders Basketball Organization. After one year as head coach, he guided the team to a second-place finish in the N.C. USSSA state tournament. In 2015 and 2016, Dumas’ team won the N.C. USSSA 17U state championship. His Defenders squad was state runner-up in 2017.
