Danny Colon

Danny Colon grew up in Hell’s Kitchen and began playing basketball when he was 9 years-old. By his own admission, he was mediocre at best with and an attitude to match. Under masterful coaching and strong guidance, Danny matured into a very good point guard and great teammate leading his School of the Future HS team to the playoffs and city semi-finals in back-to-back years. Danny earned a scholarship to Jamestown College and finished his playing career at City College where he earned his degree.

In addition to coaching with Global Sports, Danny is an incredibly successful 3rd and 4th grade coach at Riverside where he has won locally, regionally and nationally.
