Tony Stockman

Head Coach 5th season


Head Coach Tony Stockman enjoyed a memorable inaugural season as he led the Trailblazers to the very first NCCAA National Championship in school history during his first year as coach.  The Trailblazers went 27-8 overall and 22-0 against NCCAA Division II competition on their way to the National Title.

Stockman is a product of Medina, Ohio and is no stranger to basketball in the Buckeye state. Stockman was named Mr. Basketball Ohio in 2000 after averaging 25.5 points per game and becoming the all-time leading scorer at Medina High School where he led his team to a 58-9 record in three seasons. He then signed with Clemson University where he would prove to be the top freshman in the ACC with a scoring average of 12.0 in his first season. In his 2nd season at Clemson he was the leading sophomore scorer in ACC play with an average of 14.1 points per game in conference games.

Stockman became an Ohio State Buckeye following the 2001-02 season when he transferred from Clemson University. After sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules, he averaged 13.6 points per game to lead Ohio State in scoring as a junior. As a senior, he led Ohio State to a 20-12 record under new head coach Thad Matta.

"Tony is a leader in every sense of the word," said Ohio State Coach Thad Matta. "He was a floor general for us and was the closest thing you could get to a coach on the floor." Stockman comes to OCU with strong ties to both Thad Matta at Ohio State University and John Groce at Ohio University. Both coaches have served as mentors to Coach Stockman for the past nine years and will continue in that relationship in his new role at OCU.

"I want to help young men grow on and off the court as they become future leaders in our community," said Stockman. "Ohio Christian University is a great place to grow and develop both spiritually and as a young professional. If you are a young person looking for that kind of opportunity, then OCU is the place to be." Stockman is married to his wife Brittany and the couple has three sons and two daughters- Tayden, Maddox, Braysen, Mytae, and Solae.
