Men's Basketball, 1994-95
Growing up in nearby Havana, Florida, the game of basketball was an important part of Dimitric Salters' life. Following a standout career at the former Havana Northside High School, he played at Florida A&M University as a freshman, and then spent his sophomore campaign at Tallahassee Community College, where he played for the Eagles during the 1994-95 season.
During his only season at TCC, Salters averaged 8.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game for an Eagles squad which finished 24-8 and advanced to the Florida Community College Activities Association Tournament as Panhandle Conference Runners-Up. At the FCCAA Tournament, he helped TCC to its first ever postseason victory - a 93-90 win over Indian River Community College.
After attending TCC, Salters traveled across the state line to Thomasville, Georgia, where he played two seasons at what is now Thomas University. As a senior in 1996-97, he earned NAIA All-American honors and was runner-up for Southeast Regional Most Valuable Player. He earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the former Thomas College in 1997. Later that year, he was elected to the Thomas County Hall of Fame.
In 1997, Salters embarked on what would become a five-year professional basketball career. Between 1997 and 2002, he played for eight different teams in South America (Venezuela), Europe (Norway, Portugal, Poland) and New Zealand.
Salters' basketball career came full circle in 2005 when he was named head coach at East Gadsden High School. He has also founded the Coach Salters Individual Skills Camp and is co-founder of the Next Level Pro Basketball Showcase.
