Trinity-Byrnes welcomes new basketball coach
Cornelius Snead will be joining the Trinity-Byrnes Athletic Department for the 2020-21 year as the Head Girls’ Basketball Coach.
Snead comes to TBCS from Middleburg Academy in Virginia where he was the Head Girls’ Basketball Coach. He has also served as coach at Herndon High School, The Miller School and Notre Dame Academy.
This fall will mark Snead’s 17th year as a basketball coach. When asked about his many years as a coach and the upcoming year at Trinity-Byrnes, he said he has always enjoyed working with players, not only teaching them basketball skills, but also using the game he loves to teach life lessons such as good study habits and the importance of health and wellness.
“Coaching for on-the-court experiences is just as important as coaching for life’s off-the-court experiences,” he says.
Snead has coached over 68 student athletes who were recruited by Division 1, 2 and 3 colleges.
He has coached four teams to conference championships, won a state championship, coached six All State Players, three conference Players of the Year, one Olympian, and his teams have been ranked fourth by the Washington Post and first by USA Today and ESPN.
Snead attended Liberty University in Virginia.
In addition to being a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning, he is a member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and has spent the last 10 years working alongside the University of North Carolina women’s coaching staff, serving as a coach during the girls’ summer camps.
