This support is special. It is what motivates Koby. He knows that every time he puts on a jersey, he is representing something beyond himself. He is representing his community. His people. His country.
As he says, “When I step on the court, I fear nothing. I know that I am representing my family and my country.”
The game of basketball has become a catalyst for Koby to bring his community together.
It comes to no surprise that this strong sense of community was a big selling point for the Flyers when it came to Koby’s recruitment. Koby built a relationship with Coach Ricardo Greer (an incredible player from the Dominican Republic in his own right) that helped give Koby a glimpse into the University of Dayton. As he learned more about the university, he got to know Coach Anthony Grant and the rest of the staff. For Koby, he quickly realized that the University of Dayton felt comfortable. That comfort came through the familiarity that he felt with the staff, players, and Dayton community. The emphasis on community and love that he felt from the Dayton Flyers community helped him make the decision to commit.
For Koby, it was simple. “One of the most important things in basketball is togetherness.” Koby felt at home with the Flyers.
Now, as Koby gets ready to embark on the next chapter of his journey, he is excited. He is ready to fully embrace and grow with his new community. He hopes that his positivity will allow him to see success both on and off the court. No matter how the next couple of years turn out, there is one thing that is a definite. Koby Brea is going to have the unwavering support of his community. Whether it is the Dayton community, his family and community back home, the basketball community, or any other community; we are all going to be standing together in support of Koby. Together.
