Women’s basketball head coach Judy Allen continues to add talent to her roster, and this time, she found the right player from right here is Jacksonville. Freshman Tamara Brown is a local player who brings winning experience to TBC, and she is ready to help propel the Eagles to a South Region title.
Tamara Brown — Jacksonville, FL
Tamara is a former student of Trinity Christian Academy, where she played one year of JV basketball before transferring to Cornerstone Christian School. She then played at Seacoast Christian Academy as a junior and Beaches Chapel School as a senior under head coach William Johnson. Tamara is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thurman and La Schelle Brown.
As a sophomore at Cornerstone, Tamara won a district championship and team MVP by averaging 15 points per game in 19 games. She continued her success at Seacoast and Beaches Chapel. Despite her multiple transfers, Tamara scored over 700 points as a high-school varsity player. She has also played basketball for the AAU Lady Sparks and volleyball at Beaches Chapel.
Tamara’s reasons for choosing Trinity Baptist College stem from her previous time with TCA and her visits to TBC during the recruiting process. “I chose Trinity because of many good things I both heard experienced from just visiting,” she said. “The teachers and everybody at the school are very supporting. They want what is best for everybody who goes — or even does not go — to the school, and they have a message that screams, ‘We want to help you on your path to greatness.‘ ”
At this time, Tamara is undecided on her plans for after college, but she has time to make those decisions. Possibilities include counseling, starting a business, or sports management. She trusts God in helping her make those decisions. “I look forward to learning & doing bigger things in life with what the guidance of God and this school will bring me,” she stated. Her favorite quote is “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it” from Maya Angelou.
The Eagles are pleased to welcome Tamara Brown into the TBC family.
