Nyack Alumni Doing Great Things! | Jason Crafton (’03)

May 26, 2022

Nyack alumnus Jason Crafton is currently head coach of men’s basketball at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, but that’s not all he’s has done since his 2003 graduation.

Basketball has long been his passion.

At the U.S. Navy Academy, Jason was associate head men’s basketball coach from 2010 to 2012. He served his alma mater as head men’s basketball coach from 2012-2018. Coach Crafton was chosen by Athletes in Action to lead a team that played in Auckland, New Zealand during summer 2018.  He was tapped to serve as assistant coach for the G League Delaware Blue Coats, an American professional basketball team that is an affiliate of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.

During his tenure at Nyack, he hosted a Warriors Basketball podcast, which was available on the Nyack Athletics website, Soundcloud and iTunes. Those sportscasting skills have not been benched.
