My name is Thomas Viglianco and I played professional basketball for 9 years from my first season in Italy in 2006-2007 till my last season in 2015-2016. I have been blessed with many things in my life and through basketball many things have been made possible. I have always had a passion for helping youth achieve their goals on and off the basketball court. I feel that my knowledge from my basketball experiences can help teach and shape young player’s lives. I am motivated and looking forward to helping your child became both a well rounded basketball player and individual.
I have played against and have learned from some of the best players in the world and I know what it takes to become a great basketball player.
I was born in Washington D.C., but call Alabama my first home as my family moved to the South when I was young. My family is very important to me. My parents shaped me into the man I am today with strong values and morals. I started playing basketball in the 3rd grade, as my dad was a college basketball player at Division 1 St. Bonaventure in New York and encouraged me to start playing sports. From my early days of playing, all the way through college I always had the dream to play professional basketball. I attended Bob Jones High School in Madison, Alabama where my game really took off. I was an all-state player and played on many highly touted AAU summer teams that traveled around the country playing against the best players. I was a top 100 player in the country by some scouting services and I was fortunate to attend the Adidas ABCD camp in New Jersey for the top 200 players in the nation my junior summer in high school.
