Gary Browne Transfers to Arlington Country Day

Gary Browne Ramirez, a 6'1 PG/SG from St Francis School in PR has decided to transfer to Arlington Country Day School "ACDS", in Jacksonville, Florida. ACDS Head Coach, Rex Morgan is familiar with Puerto Rican players having coached several including PR National Team SG, Danny Huertas. Danny's younger brother is a freshman at ACDS and his mother works at the school. ACDS lost its PG who was from Turkey and decided to accept a contract overseas to play professionally. ACDS has a roster full of big time D1 players and Browne will have a chance to play PG and show people that he can run a team. Browne has played the SG position both in high school and for the national team but clearly his position at the next level is going to be PG.

Todd Washington, Senior Advisor to the President of the PR Basketball Federation told IPRB, "Gary has all the skills necessary to transition into being a PG. I think it is his natural position and will allow him to utilize his dribble-drive ability coupled with his long range shooting. ACDS has so much talent on the wing and in the post that opponents will have to double team those players leaving Gary open. This is the perfect situation for him and I am so excited that he is getting a chance to play at this level. Gary and I have been working all fall and I can tell you he will excel in this environment. He is a great kid and really deserves this!"

Arlington Country Day is coach by former Boston Celtic, Rex Morgan. They play a nationally ranked schedule this year including Montrose Christian and St Benedicts both of whom have players from PR on their rosters. ACDS front line has two 7 footers and wings who have been offered by SEC, ACC and Big 12 schools.
