Coach Souleymane “Sal” Koureissi 

Coach Koureissi played his scholastic basketball at Iona Prep, where he led the Gaels to fantastic CHSAA success, and his travel basketball for Castle Athletics where he starred on teams that thrived on the Adidas Silver and Gold Circuits.  Following graduation, Sal went on to play four years at University of Richmond and, with the benefit of an NCCA-authorized extra year, a graduate year at Radford University.  Castle welcomes Sal back to lead the charges of the B17U team and provide the leadership and guidance that only a veteran of two D1 programs can provide.
