My name is Ericka Cromartie, I am the head Girls’ Basketball Coach at FAMU DRS. My job is geared to teach the young ladies at FAMU DRS, basketball skills, life skills, and to give them exposure to the game of basketball.
I am a former baby rattler, and I have the opportunity to teach Physical Education and coach high school girls’ basketball at my Alma Mater. I graduated from FAMU DRS in 2001, and after graduation I attended Miles College in Birmingham, Alabama where I played basketball for four years. Upon graduating from Miles College, I returned to the state of Florida to attend The Florida State University where I received a Master’s Degree in Physical Education. I also received a Master’s Degree in Sport Management at the Florida Agriculture and Mechanical University. Furthermore, I began teaching and coaching basketball in 2008, while I was working at Crossroad Academy Charter School in Quincy Florida.
In 2014-15, I began coaching basketball at FAMU DRS, where my team won the 2A State Championship. At this time, I was voted “2A Coach of the Year.” By 2015-16, my team won back to back State Championships, and I was voted “2A Coach of the Year” again. In 2016-17 My team won a third State Championship and I was named "Coach of the Year" for a third time. Finally, I truly thank GOD for giving me the opportunity and the will to teach and coach students to become the best they can possibly be.
