About Coach Randy DeFeo and Gryphon Basketball

Our mission is to develop well-rounded basketball players and people by promoting self-confidence, leadership and teamwork.  Players who participate in Gryphon Basketball lessons, camps and AAU teams will be coached to perform at their highest level.  The Gryphon Way

At Gryphon Basketball, we play smart and we play hard, always trying our best in every drill and in every game.  We play fundamental basketball, learning the skills in practice so we can go out in the game and play with confidence.  We play up-tempo defense, always looking for the steal that turns defense into offense.  When our teammates make a mistake we are there to pick them up.  When we make a mistake, we learn and get better the next time.  Our coaches lead us with enthusiasm and with integrity because they care about us as players and as people.  We are proud to wear blue.  We are proud to be Gryphons!


"I would not send this email if I did not think the world of Randy and his ability to make your son/daughter better at the game of basketball. He is easily one of, if not THE, best players I have ever coached and more importantly he is a far better human being. He is a tremendous role model and would be a great influence on your son/daughter both athletically and personally. It is without any reservation that I recommend his services for anyone looking for a personal trainer this pre-season." – Mike Troy (RHS Boys Varsity Head Coach)

Why the Gryphon?

The mythological gryphon combines an eagle’s head and wings with a lion’s body, representing domination over the earth and the sky. For our basketball program, the gryphon symbolizes our goals to be strong like the lion on defense and agile with great vision like the eagle on offense.
