Sheridan Secures Stetson Opportunity

Newman School & New York Jayhawks big man Finley Sheridan announced his commitment to Stetson last night. 

Sheridan began his high school career at Calhoun. He helped the Colts win 13 games in the 2019-20 season, earning All-Long Island Sophomore honors. 

After that year, Sheridan made the decision to transfer to Long Island Lutheran. His first season like many others was cut short due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This past season, he was a part of a team that made it to the New York State Championships Class AA title game. 

His next move will be in NEPSAC AAA as he chose to take a post-grad year at Newman. 

Sheridan competed on the Adidas 3SSB circuit with New York Jayhawks. He had per game averages this past spring/summer of 9.5 points and 4.3 rebounds while also hitting 18 three-pointers. 

“Finley is just scratching the surface on who he can become as a person and player,” said Newman head coach Jackson Johnson. "He is smart, willing, and skilled with 6’9 size. His versatility on both ends of the floor makes him a really exciting prospect and someone we will use in a variety of ways this year.”

“He also has put on 10 pounds since coming to campus and is really picking up momentum in the weight room. I am excited for his future in college basketball. Stetson got a good one.”

Sheridan is the first member of Newman's 2023 class who has finalized their plans to play division one college basketball next fall.
