Crusader Outlook Over the Past Thirty-One Years 

Tampa Catholic has achieved unparalleled success in its boys' basketball program. A program that has achieved success in the past has become one of the most consistent programs in the state and a model for other programs to build upon.  

Since the 1991-92 Season, the Crusaders have... 

  • Won 576 games. 

  • Fourteen 20-win seasons. On four other occasions the team won 19 games.  

  • Fourteen district championships. TC has twenty-three district championships in its storied history. 

  • Eleven-district runner-up finishes. 

  • Twenty-five trips to the Regionals. 

  • Eleven trips to the regional finals. 

  • Ten trips to the State Final Four including 5 consecutive from 2016-20. TC had one Final Four appearance prior to 1991. 

  • Been named the Hillsborough County Team of the Year on four occasions.  

  • Won one State Championship in 1995. 

  • State Runner-up in 2017 and 2020. 

  • Had the entire 1995 team be inducted into the TC Hall of Fame. 

  • One head coach inducted into the Tampa Catholic HOF. 

  • One head coach was selected state Coach of the Year. 

  • Nineteen players who have scored over 1000 points during this time span. TC has twenty-eight 1000-point scorers, more than any other Hillsborough County school. 

  • Four players who have scored over 2000 points.  

  • The all-time leading scorer in the history of Hillsborough County.

  • Have been ranked #1 during the season on several occasions. The 1995-96 season saw the Crusaders ranked #1 throughout the season only to lose to Pahokee in the regional final in an unbelievable setting that still evokes stories from those in attendance.  

  • Had a day named in their honor by the mayor of the City of Tampa. This occurred on March 8, 1995. 

  • Had a first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft going 9th overall to the New York Knicks, one player who played professionally in Europe, three state players of the year, one Mr. Basketball state award winner, two Alston ‘Mac’ McGahagin (County POY) award winners, a 2-time gold medal winner for USA Basketball, a McDonald’s All-American, a Jordan Brand Classic selection, and numerous all-county, all-Suncoast, and all-state honorees. 

  • Numerous players that have received college scholarships.  

  • Have played in tournaments in California (twice), New York (twice), Atlanta, Chicago (twice), Washington DC, Las Vegas, South Carolina, Tennessee, and New Orleans. The Crusaders also traveled to Austria, Slovenia, and Italy in the summer of 1996.
