Surrey Scorchers is delighted to announce the signing of US import Demario Beck for the 2018/19 BBL Championship season.

The 24-year-old power forward is a rookie out of Coastal Carolina University and joins Quincy Taylor and Tayo Ogedengbe in the Scorchers squad which is lining up to be one of the strongest yet.

Beck spoke of his excitement to be making his way to Surrey: “The BBL is a great league and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Scorchers and the support provided by their fan base.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the coaching staff, my teammates and the fans when I arrive. I can’t wait to start training with the team and getting the season underway.

“I had a lot of options for the upcoming season, but after researching the team, the community and the league, I felt like the Scorchers are the perfect fit for me for the upcoming season.

“There is a real family feel to Scorchers and that is very important to me.”

Head Coach Creon Raftopoulos spoke of his new signing’s desire to get going at Surrey Sports Park.

“I believe Demario will be our energy guy. He’s an athletic forward that can defend multiple positions.

“I know he’s a hungry rookie real excited about starting his professional career with a winning season.”
