Shawnelle Scott is another alumnus of our program and has been directly and indirectly involved with Pro-Style Basketball Workouts for many years now. While at All-Hallows H.S. in the Bronx, New York, Scott became familiar with the founders of Pro-Style, Arnie Jacobs and Evander Ford, through city-wide open gyms and local scrimmaging. They helped him develop his game and soon after, he garnered the reputation as one of NYC’s best young Big Men, and even earned All-City Honors his last two years of high school.
Scott then went on and played for legendary coach Lou Carnesecca at St. John’s University. He was drafted 43rd in the 1994 NBA Draft and has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, and the Denver Nuggets. Scott has also had two stints in the CBA and in Europe, playing in Italy and in Greece as recently as 2006. Shawnelle’s ability to teach and motivate, especially at the Big Man position is unmatched, and anyone privileged enough to learn from him will definitely benefit in their career.
Shawnelle Scott brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Pro-Style Basketball Workouts, and we are proud to have him on “Our Team”.
