Amityville Sharp Shooter Chooses Prep Route Over College Offers


Just in…Darnell Evans of the Amityville Warriors’ will be continuing his Student-Athlete basketball career at the Believe Academy in South Carolina…

After speaking to Darnell he explained that he will be playing on the Class of 2021 National Team of the Believe Academy Team. Believe Academy is a nationally-ranked postgraduate basketball program based in Rock Hill, South Carolina just off the campus of Winthrop University. The team plays a national schedule that can range from 40-50+ games per year. This allows the kids to gain maximum exposure while working to earn an athletic scholarship to play basketball at a college or university. Darnell has an outstanding high school career but believes that his offers were not to the potential of his gameplay. Therefore by going Prep, he hopes to garner bigger and better opportunities on the College level.


Darnell’s accolades from his 2019-2020 campaign consist of:

  • First Team All-Long Island

  • All-County

  • 3rd team All-State
