Trinity Christian Academy (TCA) has named Dayton Sheridan as our new head coach for the boys' basketball program.  

Dayton Sheridan played basketball at Aledo High School and then collegiately at Hendrix College (AR). As a collegiate player, Dayton played all four years as a power forward/center for the Hendrix Warriors graduating with a degree in Kinesiology. 

Coach Sheridan continued his playing career after college, playing professionally in China, then with the DFW Stars and Fort Worth F.I.R.M. for two years in the Universal Basketball Association (UBA). He was also invited to a professional FIBA basketball tournament with the Houston Havok in Kingston, Jamaica. Most recently, Sheridan played semi-professional basketball with the Central Texas Nighthawks of the American Basketball Association (ABA). He began his coaching career as an assistant coach at TCA in 2014. In addition to being the head basketball coach, Coach Sheridan will also coach volleyball and junior high track.  

“It is a true honor and blessing for a small town kid like myself who grew up in Aledo to be a part of this amazing school and basketball program. This is a dream come true for me. I look forward to a successful season bringing my passion and love of the game of basketball along with my knowledge and ever-growing faith to this talented and growing athletic program. I am truly thankful for this opportunity and become as bigger part of the TCA family." said Sheridan.

TCA Athletic Director, Joe Hamstra added, “We are blessed to be able to promote a caliber of coach to this position. As we have already seen in past seasons as the Junior Varsity head coach and Varsity assistant coach, his ability to connect with the kids and his extensive knowledge of the game will challenge our players to compete at a higher level. Off the court, Dayton will help mold and grow our student-athletes in their faith.“
