Nicolia Simmons - Trainer / Coach
Nicolia Simmons played two years of varsity basketball at the University of San Francisco. She led the Lady Dons in rebounding her junior and senior years and was their most efficient scorer, earning her All-WCC Honorable Mention honors. This past summer "Coli" led her San Francisco Pro-Am team to the playoff semifinals, averaging close to 30 points and 20 rebounds per-game. She credits her recent growth as a player to training with Donovan Blythe, who also coached her in the Pro-Am, for the first time this summer. Coli prepped at Deer Valley High School in Antioch, CA, where she averaged 25 points and 12 rebounds per-game and was a second team all Bay Area Metro selection by the San Francisco Chronicle. Coli transferred to USF from San Joaquin Delta College, where she was a Kodak JC All-American and two time SJDC player of the year. She has a great passion for the game and really enjoys working with kids. Coli will be joining the coaching staff at Eastside College Prep this coming season as well as finishing up her BA in Sociology at USF.
