zz Lavius Rosemond, 6’4″, 198, G, SF, Freshman

Florida_thumb.jpgPay back from Florida?  With AVC’s Daviyon Draper headed for Florida International University with a D-1 scholarship and AVC’s Dewayne Dedmon playing NBA basketball with the Orlando Magic, finally Florida reciprocates.  Lavius Rosemond, 6’4”, 198 graduated from Ocoee High School located in Ocoee, Florida, 12 miles west of Orlando.

“Florida” graduated in 2013 and was the captain of his team.  He scored 12.7 ppg, had 2.3 apg, 5.1 rpg and 1.7 spg.  He was ranked by the Orlando Sentinel in the top 16 players in the greater Orlando area.

Lavius will be majoring in Communications and is looking to get an AA degree and ultimately a four year degree at a D-1 university.  He wants to play basketball at the highest level possible.

As you can see, Rosemond likes the weight room and is a very strong young man. Early evaluations shows an excellent mid-range shot.  He wants to work on is his ball handling and defensive skills.

“Florida” looks like he will fit in very well with this year’s team.  He is learning the rules and regulations of AVC’s academic expectations and was last seen heading out to the track with the rest of the team after the two hour basketball class.

It was a tough decision but Lavius Rosemond and Coach Taylor have decided with the 10 sophomores on the current team, to have “Florida” red-shirt this year.  In addition, due to the late arrival of Rosemond, this red-shirt year will give him time to work on this academics and learning the AVC system.  Florida will be a special player in the next two years.
