Joshua Cabrera to Coach MB Boys’ Varsity Basketball
Moses Brown School is pleased to announce that upper school faculty member Joshua Cabrera has agreed to coach MB’s Boys’ Varsity Basketball team next year. He brings a tremendous resume within prep school basketball.
Josh was a star player for Classical High School where he was named All-State and All Division, as well as team MVP while winning the State Division II title in his senior season. Additionally, Josh was honored with the school’s highest athletic award for top student athlete.
Josh next took his talents to Norwich University in Vermont where he continued to accumulate honors and records. Josh scored over 1000 points while at Norwich, was a three-year team captain, and named to the All-Conference team twice. After college, he traveled to the Dominican Republic to play professionally before being offered the head coaching position at the Gunnery School in Connecticut. During his three years at the Gunnery, Josh coached the team to their first winning season in over 20 years before making the move to basketball powerhouse Vermont Academy as associate head coach, coaching nine Division I players.
At MB, Josh has also served as the girls’ assistant varsity basketball coach and faculty advisor to the Mock Trial team; he teaches Math and Spanish in the upper school. When asked what he enjoys most about coaching high school basketball, Josh said, “I think it is important for kids to realize that basketball is more than just winning. For me, this sport has taken me to so many places, and without it and the connections I have made and the brotherhoods I have built, I would not be where I am today. I want kids to not only learn the game of basketball and be ready to play at the college level, I also want them to grow with one another; build friendships, relationships, grow as young men, and create a brotherhood so when they come back for school reunions they have awesome memories.”
Please join us in congratulating Josh Cabrera. Go Quakers!
