Reggie Cameron has been named Saint Joseph’s graduate manager for men's basketball, head coach Billy Lange announced today.
Cameron comes to Hawk Hill after playing professionally for two seasons, most recently for Esgueira Oli of the Liga Portuguesa de Basquetebol.
Prior to beginning his professional career in Germany with the Dusseldorf Giant, Cameron was a four-year standout at Georgetown. Appearing in over 100 games with the Hoyas, he led Georgetown to a pair of postseason bids, including an appearance in the Third Round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Serving as team captain as a senior, he went on to play for the Orlando Magic's NBA Summer League squad in 2017 before continuing his career overseas.
Off the court, Cameron was heavily involved in the community at Georgetown as he volunteered with So Others Might Eat (SOME) and Lead By Example Foundation. Serving as a counselor for both non-profits, he participated in programs designed to help community members find pathways out of poverty, taught youth the importance of physical and health education practices and encouraged making positive changes to everyday life.
“We are excited to add someone of Reggie’s experience as a basketball player to help our program. I met Reggie when I recruited him as a high school athlete, and I remember him as a man of character, and a very selfless and humble leader,” said Lange. “We are expecting him to add value from his playing experiences both at Georgetown and internationally. Reggie is hungry to learn how to be a coach, and I'm looking forward to him adding leadership and value into our players' lives.”
A native of Hackensack, New Jersey, Cameron was a standout at Paterson Catholic and Hudson Catholic. A four-year letterwinner, he finished his high school career with more than 1,700 points and was named First Team All-County three times and First Team All-State honoree.
