“The best coach at St. Joseph’s Prep, hands down, is Tony Braithwaite. Here’s why: he never settles for anything but a student’s best performance; his kids practice until they do it his way; and he himself gives 100% of himself at every practice. So when it’s time for his kids to perform for real, they have already done the hard part: pleasing their coach.” – Speedy Morris, Varsity Basketball Coach
