The Long Island Luthern Basketball program today announced on Twitter that Leon Pursoo, who held the varsity head coaching position at the PSAL’s Eagle Academy for Young Men II in Brooklyn from 2012-18, has been named head coach of its second varsity team. 

Additionally, Pursoo, a LuHi grad in 2001, was an assistant coach at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn from 2010-2012 before entering the coaching at the high school level. 

Pursoo played basketball at Southampton College (now known as Long Island University-Riverhead) and graduated in 2005. 

LuHi’s second hoops program will compete in the Private School Athletic Association (PSAA), in the New York Metropolitan Area.
