Amityvlle Memorial High School senior Travis Dickerson, who starred on the Warrior varsity boys basketball team, will attend Nyack College this fall on a full scholarship. Ironically, Nyack’s team is also called the Warriors.

“Travis is in a very unique class,” said AMHS Warrior head basketball coach Jack Agostino regarding the 6-4 senior who was named to Newsday’s All-Long Island 1st team and achieved All-County status this season. Travis was also named Most Valuable Player of the 2014 Suffolk County playoffs and averaged 18 points, six rebounds and four steals per game.  For the regular season, he averaged 20 points, four rebounds and four-and-half assists per game.

His mother Carolyn Dickerson and his Aunt Rose stood by his side along with Coach Agostino, Acting Superintendent Dr. Mary T. Kelly, AMHS Interim Principal Dr. Mary DeRose and Athletic Director William Maisel as Travis signed his commitment letter.

 “Travis has a great family and he is an awesome person,” added coach Agostino. “Every coach dreams of having a player like Travis Dickerson.  I'm very thankful for the opportunity to coach such a fine young man.”
